My First Black & White Card

Well, black & white AND Gray. Two grays in fact. I had so much fun with this one. I tried Martha Stewart Glitter (on heat'n'stick powder.) It's got a lovely sparkle to it I.R.L. The flower is embossed with white e.p. on vellum cardstock. (I've been wanting to do that for a while.) It's from the set "Petals Plus" I was really happy with how its polka dots went with this ribbon. (I've been stocking up on ribbon lately. Though it is SOOOooo hard to choose which ribbons, isn't it?)

The flourish is from fancy pants; it's embossed with black craft ink & clear e.p. The cardstocks here are the textured ones and black n white...

Thanks so much for looking,
Mel
