black, white and bold (CFC, Creative Friday)

Lotsa white.  Black.  Bold colors.  Graphic.  MASKed.  Hmmm... anyone come to mind?

Alles Gute nachträglich zum Geburtstag, Ardyth!

So, you surely know this by now, but just in case you've been under a rock the one-and-only Darnell K. is hosting a party for Ardyth P.R.'s birthday.  In case you don't know Darnell (must be a really big rock you've been under) she is one heckuva party hostess.  And Ardyth is one heckuva card designer.  Lotsa white.  Usually black too.  Usually centered.  Often circles.  Often masked. And always bright colors.  Like this card I chose to CASE.

Don't you just love it when cards are punny or engage-brain-before-looking-at-this?  Ardyth's cards often are. Which is why I went with the "4u" as part of my sediment (that's Darnell-speak, BTW). The off-center design and artsy fartsy "happy"?  Well, that was pure me.

What are you waiting for?  Pick a card.  CASE it and join the party!
