CAS-ual Fridays #62

TGIF!! Hello, friends! It's CAS-ual Fridays time!
The challenge is to use black card base for your clean and simple design! I must admit that it seems a bit daunting to use black as a card base. We all feel so much more comfortable to reach that white/neutral color card stock!! I am now actually pleased to share my card with black card base! I chose this stamp To From Flower . The dotted details are amazing, so I embossed the flower in pink and orange. With the sentiment from SRM Stickers and May Arts ribbons, this card was rather easy to make!
Merci
What do you think? I highly recommend you to check out the DT's inspiring card to get inspired! Please link up your CAS project by noon, Thursday,  July 26 to CAS-ual Fridays. I am also entering this card for Moxie Fab World's Thank You card Challenge (details here).
I can't wait to see your take with a little black magic!
