I made this for Pricilla's midnight madness challenge found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com
I used white as my base. The cut strips of black and mounted them. Then I used white, black and white again for my image.
For the flower on the black portion, I used white craft ink and bridal embossing powder and heat embossed the image. I then used a black and white ribbon to complete the picture.
I feel this card has all the classic components of an elegant card.
thanks for looking!
