The Bold and The Beautiful

Over at CAS-ual Fridays they are having  challenge #CFC45:  The Bold and the Beautiful.  Create a Clean and Simply project using pastels and black.  This really has a stunning effect.

I started with a 3-1/2" x 8" white cardstock.  I layered it with a 2-1/2" x 8" black cardstock.  The 3 pastel squares are cut at 2-1/4" x 2-1/4".  I used a Close to my Heart flower image and stamped it three times on co-ordinating gingham paper.  Cut these flowers out, added a matching large brad to the center of each.  Stamped the sentiment in black and finished with black bakers twine.

Catch the Frenzy!
