CAS(E) this Sketch! and Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Thanks

Happy Monday!

Today I needed to get another thank you card done and decided to check out what challenges would fit today.  I decided on the sketch challenge over at CAS(E) this sketch!

Here is the address to this sketch challenge:
http://casethissketch.blogspot.com/2013/01/case-this-sketch-challenge-10.html  

I also liked the color challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge.  It is to make a card in black and white with a splash of color.  Here is the address to that challenge:   http://simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2013/01/blackwhite-splash-of-colour.html  


Now here is my card that I made using these challenges as a guide.


I started with a white card and then added a black mat(CTMH).  I then cut another white piece(CTMH) to mount onto the black.  I then stamped my swirl image(inkadinkado) and the "thanks"(Simon Says Stamp) in black Momento ink.  I added just a splash of color to the swirl with a Coral Copic sketch marker.  And that is it.  Nice and simple.  A real CAS card.  :D

Thanks for stopping by.
Janet
