Black, White, Pop! - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

It's been a great week - I'm almost on target for the week.  Hopefully the shower and dishwasher will be fixed soon.  You know, I managed years without a dishwasher and now I appreciate just how much time and effort is saved in having one.  Can you tell I hate washing up?!

Kathy has set the challenge this week for the Daring Cardmakers and it's a really good one! So you use black and white and add a pop of any other other colour.  Fun, right?!

I decided to go for a male theme on this one and make a card for my Dad whose birthday is coming up.  I used orange for my 'pop' colour.  That happened after I chose the sentiment 'Top Guy' for my card.  It's a sentiment from a set I bought in Craftwork Cards sale.  I love their sentiments - something for everyone!

I used an old paper pad from DCWV which had the diamond pattern and I die cut circles and the letters for DAD.  To embellish I used washi tape, ribbon and enamel dots.

I hope you have a good weekend whatever you're up to.  We've got another busy one - of course, it's the boys and their social life but after the Christmas holidays we've had they deserve it!

See you next week!

Products Used:
DCWV Stack
Craftwork Cards Sentiment
First Edition Alphabet Dies
All adhesive from Stix 2 Anything
Everything else from my stash

Love it! That orange really zings, doesn't it? Makes a perfect masculine card - why do so many men like the colour orange?
