Black & White for the Penguins! (CFC36)

This post is for the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays honoring the penguin. The challenge says your entry must be JUST black and white without a spec of any other color.
I wanted to make a few cards to have on hand just to write a good ole' fashioned note, so I was happy to play along and use up some of the scrap Night & Day DSP (retired) filling my files. I think the DSP blended great with a few of the stamps from "Established Elegance" and "Happy Greetings". I think it works for the challenge and for what I had in mind too. Here is my clean and simple card for CFC36 Penguin Suit.
I used two sizes of the brand new SU "framelit labels" dies, LOVE these.
Here is a peek at the inside.
 A touch on the envelope too.

Well this went so smooth and fast I decided to make another one but flipped it vertical this time.

Hootie says " Hoot Hoot Hooray... Thanks for stopping by today!
      Please leave a comment with your thoughts; I hope you will stop by again!"

Oh Diane this is gorgeous I love the large swirl and the frame dies are perfect. I'd say you're right on target for the challenge,
I was just uploading my card for the same challenge...great minds think alike, both used large frames!

These are gorgeous Diane! Love the classic and elegant look of the swirled paper, label frames and the black/white color combination. The polka dot ribbon is the perfect accent piece...love it!
