I love black & white

If you look at my gallery on Splitcoaststampers, you will see that I am rather fond of black and white cards. I love them! I think the reason is you don't have to think about them, you can't use four different colors of cardstock, ribbon and eight different type of embellishment, you just use black and white.

This card came out exactly as I imagined it in my head, which if you know me, you will know is very rare. I am so pleased with how it turned out.

All the flowers are stamped in versamark and embossed in white embossing powder. My one little tip is always use an embossing buddy if you use white embossing powder, because it does have a tendency to stray.

The top flower has two layers of dimensionals (foam pads) to give it height above the layer below.

The For You rivet is really cool, it is a ribbon slider. I used the double rectangle punch to thread the ribbon through and then mounted the heart centre on dimensionals above, so it moves bakc and fore along the ribbon.

I love your card. I am so excited at how many comments you received as well. Well done, and absolutely brilliant card.
But I do think it might look nicer at my house. LOL
