CAS-ual Fridays, Dynamic Duos, & a Call for Cards

I had time to make cards today after freezing corn and peaches. This one is for the CASual Fridays CFC62 to use black as a card base, as well as the Dynamic Duos #12 to use Poppy Parade & Basic Black, plus there's a dessert option to use punches.
I used some Poppy Parade dsp for the flowers & leaf, and the HA sentiment was embossed with versamark ink and white ep. The die cut was done with a Simon Says Stamp daisies die and adhered to a piece of white cardstock. The punch I used was a corner rounder and the black pearls are from Pizzazz Aplenty.

I found this incredible story this morning on Sandy's blog. I was so touched by this little boy's story that I immediately sat down and made several cards to send to him. If you could send just one card to Matthew and share the link on your blog, we can get the word out and help this youngster reach his goal! Here are some of the cards I made that will be on their way to him on Monday. I had to CAS these awesome background designs from Lee Mae for these pre-colored digis!


If you want some guidelines for making the cards, click on Sandy's link above for some help. My cards are simple with just 2 paper embellishments, because they're going to children, and they don't want cards with anything that could become a choking hazard.
Thanks for sticking with me for this long post! I do appreciate your stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment :)

That first card with the black and red color combo is so striking!! Love Love LOVE it!

The precolored digi images are really cute, too, and the polka dot papers you picked to go with them are so fun.
