Black & White Plus 1

Good morning, my loves!!!

I have the day off today (and tomorrow) and you would think I'd sleep in today, but  instead I've been up since 5:30 AM (couldn't sleep anymore--I was WIDE awake!).  So, what did I decide to do?  First, I spent time in devotion with GOD, of course.  And THEN, I started my own crafting party!!! Yippee!!! HA! (:

I looked up several challenges and one of them ends in a little over an hour, so I had to quickly choose that one first, before picking up the other ones...  Hence, this time I'm playing along with my friends over at CAS-UAL Fridays!  The CAS-UAL Fridays challenge this week is super fun (and easy!): Create a black and white card, plus your choice of one other color.

Here's the badge:

Here's what I created:

I actually made this card for both the challenge and for an order a good friend of mine placed for his church.  As I create the other ones for him, I hope to share them with you as well...  The images I used are digi's.  The hands I believe are from a Clear Dollar Stamps digi set I won a few months back in a challenge (forgive me, I honestly can't remember if this one was part of that set).  The sentiment I created myself as I played around with two different fonts and colors in Word for MAC.  To add depth to the white panel, I inked the edges with onyx black VersaFine ink.  Then, I assembled the card, adhered each element, tied a blow at the bottom of the card and added some blue rhinestones for a little embellished touch.  Anyway, I really like how it turned out! (:

I don't know if you'll have time to create and photograph something in only an hour as this is when the deadline is!!  Thank you, all SO much for visiting me here on the blog today!!  I'll see you soon, as I plan on crafting the entire day!! (;  'Til next time, my friends!!  Blessings... XOXO
