I made a tall card (approx. 4.5 x 6.75 inchs) for the challenge and kept it mainly CAS, although my first thought was to stamp the image again, color and fussy cut. But once I had the image stamped onto my inked card stock I actually liked the CAS look of just the black white and pink and decided to leave it this way.
To get a perfect rectangle I used painter's tape around the edges, inked with SpunSugar and Worn Lipstick distress inks, then used a brick stencil to add the brick design. After removing the painters tape I stamped the image and sentiment from the 2 piece Penny Black set Birthday Balloons with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink using my Tonic Stamp Platform. I framed the card onto a white 110 lb card base and finsished it by adding sticky rhinestones.
