Black and White - Or White and Black

Just a real quick super simple, CAS, and git 'er done card!  I'm trying to see if I can possibly use up at least half of the ribbon I have before I die - but don't know if that would ever happen since I have a tendency to buy more! Yikes!


Anyone have an idea for a good (funny) sentiment to go on the inside of this card??

Thanks for stopping by.............
Lynn

Marilyn said...

Wow... this CAS is so striking with the black and white. Great image and the ribbon could not be more perfect.

Monica said...

You made me laff about the ribbon bit - and I understand why you feel this way about this awesome ribbon! awesome cas card - my fave! Ummmm - sentiment, me and sentiments!!! Blank cards work best from the point of view of selling for me.
Marvel at how you wear so many hats - squash making, pickling, card making, sunshining, laughter....
Hugs,

Love this! Great ribbon.

No sentiment ideas from me, but it's a very versatile card and I'm sure you'll come up with lots of them. Love the zebra image and I can see why that ribbon made it into your stash, it's fantastic. Love that you kept the whole card black and white, very classic!

this is a fun card Lynn and the ribbon is perfect-the inside could be something like "I am wild about you"

Melissa said...

LOVE this b&w card! That ribbon is fabulous!!!! If you find ribbons like that while out shopping, I can see why you buy more! :)

Linda said...

I'm not sure what you should put on the inside of this card, Lynn, but the outside is stunning! That ribbon is perfect!

Tammy said...

I have TOO much ribbon too! Thankfully I've stopped buying more (for the time being)

Sentiment.......hmmmm

"Introducing the new line of bras from Victoria Secret: The ZeBRA"

I dunno - just woke up from a nap. It's the best I could give you :)

Gina Lindsay said...

Great card! I know what you mean by using the ribbon. I keep telling myself that I am not going to buy any more until I use u at least a couple of rolls of what I already have, but they just keep coming out with more and more!

Jingle said...

This is fabulous!

Love this card, Lynn! B&W can be so effective. Sentiment? "Whaddya mean you prefer plaid to stripes?" OK, maybe not the greatest but I can solve your ribbon problem. You can leave it to me in your Will. :-D Hugs.

Margaret said...

LOVE this black and white beauty!

I think we should view your ribbon situation as life 'ensurance'. The more you have, the longer you'll live, right?!

Hmm... a sentiment...need to think about this one! I do love the 'wild about you' and the 'zeBRA' suggested earlier!

Margaret said...

OK! I've got one!

"Do these stripes make my butt look big?"

Carol L said...

GRRReeat card Lynn! You chose the perfect image to go with that great ribbon too! I'm still cracking up at Maria's idea for a sentiment above! Too funny :)

MaxineD said...

Stunning and dramatic card, Lynn - how about "who said stripes are 'out'!

Lynn McAuley said...

LOVE it!!!

Vicky Hayes said...

I really like this black and white card Lynn and the zebra image is perfect. I have tried to think of a funny but I'm having a sense of humour failure I think! You know it is useless to resist the call of the ribbon... just give in and enjoy it!

Karen Howard said...

Love this card and those zebra stripes! Hugs, Karen

Wild about you!

But then it kind of limits it to who you can give it too!
