I love trying new color combinations. And I was bored with the usual reds, pinks, etc. so I started out with a black card base. That set the ball rolling.... Then I used Black and White PPs to create the bg. I wanted to have a sentiment as the focus for my card. This sentiment is from the stamp set TPC Playful expressions.
I made the flowers using this rose flower template from the net. I traced and cut out these flowers on white handmade paper. Then I colored them using Wild Honey Distress Inks. The light and dark grey leaves are cut out from an ad pamphlet. I colored the seam binding ribbon with the same ink to match the flowers.
Here's a look at my card....
I love the contrast of B/W with yellow and also the way these cute flowers look!!
