Black and White

Flourishes is celebrating their 6th Birthday!  There's still a little time to join in the fun! Check out the birthday challenges here.  I was going to try and do just one more challenge; as I starting looking at the challenges and some of the inspiration, I ended up in a card making craze and completed three more challenges instead of just one.  So this is one post of three!
Here is the card I created for the Black and White challenge.
This is the first black and white card I've ever created.  Not sure why I have never tried a black and white scheme before, maybe because I like to color and I'm a sucker for patterned papers.  After looking at some of the entries I thought, why not?  I stamped the flowers from the Garden Gate set across the top of a pre-cut strip of white card stock.  I stamped part of the image one direction then flipped the stamp and stamped the other side. Then I cut away the bottom portion of the flower image and spritzed with glimmer mist.  Cut some b/w patterned paper, adhered a strip of lace across the top of the patterned paper.  My stamped image is adhered with foam tape.  Stamped the sentiment, punched it out with my SU label punch, add a couple black gems and adhered it to the corner with more foam tape.  Really quick since there was no coloring and no trying to decide which shade of this or that looks better together!
Thanks for stopping by! God bless!!
