A study in ultra-CAS

Hello!

Today's card is a study in ULTRA-CAS.
I was going to bling it up a bit, but then I thought it was good for a serious male card. The males in my life aren't blingy type guys. :-)  If I end up using it for one of my girlfriends, then I'll pile on the bling to make them smile.

I computer generated the sentiment, using Wisdom Script typeface. The cream panel is embossed with PTI's linen impression plate. The numbers are PTI. Card is SU! black and soft suede, and PTI vintage cream.

This card is made in response to The Play Date Cafe Challenge #125 - black, white, and a splash of brown.
Also, CASE Study #84. Another of Laura's beautiful creations. You can't really tell with the photo of my card, but those numbers are negative die cut, and I used the brown panel (in place of the grey) and black card.
And the third challenge I'm entering this card into is CAS-ual Fridays #46 - make a card based on a song. In case you don't have tweenie/teen girls in your house, my song is "Count on Me" by Bruno Mars.
And one last photo. While I was photographing my card, my loyal companion was lying beside me. Then she just about turned herself upside down to check that I was still there. I was... with the camera. This is Coco, my spoodle (cockapoo).

Thanks for dropping by. If you are leaving me a comment, would you do me a favour and please let me know if word verification has reappeared? I turn it off, and for some reason Blogger keeps turning it back on in my settings. I'd hate to be driving everyone crazy if it has reappeared.

What a brilliant and inventive take on the challenge theme Michelle. Love the elegant simplicity of it and the fact that it's a perfect idea for a "male" (I do struggle with male card ideas)!!
Have a happy Sunday - Sylvia x

I love this Michelle, definitely ultra CAS and I love it as a guys card too...super way to use the colour challenge :0)
I've made a few changes recently in my settings and found that blogger keeps putting word verification on every time I change something! Even if it's nothing to do with commenting!
Doesn't look like word verification is on :0)

I have a Bichonpoo (Bichon Frise/Poodle cross), dogs are just adorable, aren't they! Thanks so much for joining in the fun with us over at The Play Date Cafe this week!
