Hip to be Square in B&W!!

Hey there, Mashup Friends!! It's time for another Friday Mashup Challenge!!
This week, Lesley gave us a classy challenge...make a card in black and white, or make a square card...or do both! I love black and white cards, but I gotta admit, I struggle with them. Seriously! I love color, so I just want to smack down a punch of red, or a splash of turquoise...maybe even pink! But I took up the challenge and came up with this:
I began with a basic black card base. I added a layer of basic black pattern paper from the Neutrals Stack. Next, I brought out my Baroque Motifs, and stamped the flourish onto whisper white with basic black craft ink, added clear embossing powder, and heat embossed. My Big Shot and Top Note die were perfect for this challenge, I thought. I scattered basic jewel rhinestones around the flourish, and out 2 on the dsp layer as well. The sentiment is from...you guessed it, Teeny Tiny Wishes. It had never seen ink! Oh my, guess I haven't made too many wedding cards! I punched it out with the modern label, layered over a scallop oval (flip side of the dsp) and popped up with dimensionals. Finally, luscious white organza ribbon with a bit of silver cording (hard to see) at the top.

Now...who's getting married??

Can't wait to see what you create! Make sure you put the keyword MU03 in your online gallery!!
