Light



The CASology cue word is "black" this week.  I first thought of black cat, but didn't want to use that for a card.  My next thought was darkness & the song we sang growing up: "This Little Light of Mine." I've had the ODBD stamp set Spread Light for a long time & now I've finally used it for my very simple card.  The quote is not so simple--makes me stop & think. Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles is used to cut the frame which I popped up over the quote which is gold embossed on ivory cardstock.  I kind of like the single black flower as the only embellishment.  
What do you think? Since I didn't use lace or ribbon, I'm entering the challenge at ODBD & the embossed sentiment makes it qualify for CAS-ual Fridays challenge. I've posted a lot of cards lately & I so appreciate that you've taken time to leave me comments.
Edited to add: ODBDSLC winner.

Gosh Greta I adore the shape of this card, it is stark in one respect, but it also has an elegance which is portrayed not only in the design but your palette also.

Just lovely, Greta! The reverse wonky dies are one of my faves and it looks great here as a frame for the thought-provoking quote. Good luck in the challenge!
