Monochromatic!

Good afternoon Lovelies! Not often I say that! Hope you all had a fab weekend, wasn't the opening ceremony fantastic? Wow when we need to we can do it with bells on! 
Not often I say this about my own work! But I love this card! 
I used 8x8 scalloped edge cream card base, pierced the edges of black card and layered, I masked the edges of some taupe coloured card and stamped in black a leafy stamp from my lovely new fave set by Creative ex called Dandelion set, I then embossed with hounds tooth embossing folder the other bit of taupe card, had to run it through twice as it was bigger than folder, I then directly inked from pad with black soot DI, it's not terribly noticeable in pic, but I did some  pleating on the ribbon and added pearls where I didn't pleat, the sentiment is from the same stamp set, I used the smallest of the new and beautiful grande, nesties, ovals, inked lightly whilst still in die with black soot DI, I then cut and embossed, using black for the branches and taupe for the cherry blossoms and inked while still in die, with same ink. And there it is, hope you like it as much as I do? Thank you for visiting today xxx

I love black and white, it always looks so elegant. This card looks fab, love the 2 sections joined by the lovely pleated ribbon, and that appears to be a very nice set of stamps from Cr. Exp. Mmmmmm, might have to check them out xx
