CAS-ual Fridays Back in Black

The challenge this week at CAS-ual Fridays is to use Black cardstock. I received the Sentiment Sampler stamp set today from Paper Smooches and could not wait to ink them  up!  Super clean and Super simple! The boombox (this card must be really aging me!) and sentiment are embossed in Silver Tinsel, which gives a sparkle finish....hard to see in the photo though! 

Supply List:

Sentiment Sampler by Paper Smooches
Boombox by Unity Stamps
Cardstock by American Crafts
VersaMark Ink
Embossing Powder by Close To My Heart

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:
Guylou's Inimitability - Music or Dance
Sisterhood of Crafters  - Let's Hear It For The Boys
The Perfect Sentiment -  Anything goes     

Thanks for stopping by!
