Back In Black

Ooooo, the summer holidays are here and I can craft all day long if I want to!
Anyway, this morning started off with a clear out and ,of course, you find all those things you've forgotten about, like black card blanks for the Cas-ual Fridays Back in Black challenge this week. This is what I came up with
I used some glue outlines and added red foil to make the gifts. Does it have a little too much bling for a CAS card, with those silver bows and little star?  I'll leave that up to you to decide, but I rather like it!

  4. Louise - I love that you chose to make a Christmas card with your black card base. Those little gifts and bows just POP against it! Thank you so much for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  5. Very cute! The red foil is so striking against the black card base. And I have no problem with bling on a CAS card--yours is just perfect! Thanks so much for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!
