Black and White Elegance

This is my post at the Dies R Us blog today!

Hello All, Happy Thursday to you!!!

I have been making so many summer and scenic cards,
that I decided to switch gears so to speak and create
a bit more of an elegant card!

The bottom glittery layer and the black layer on top
were both cut with Spellbinders Romantic Rose dies.
Now this was out of stock for a bit, but what I did was click on the tab
that says "Put me on the waiting list" and what this does
is email you when the product is back in stock.
Makes it so easy, and since this has been a very popular die,
is goes in and out quite frequently.

I stamped a beautiful sentiment from JustRite 
with white embossing powder.  I love how pretty
it looks with this card!

The flowers were made in two sizes using
Cheery Lynn Designs Gardenia Small and
Cheery Lynn Gardenia Strip.
I glittered each flower with 
Sparkle N Sprinkle Twinkling Clouds glitter.

The butterflies are Wild Rose Little Butterfly
which I heavily coated with a crystal coarse glitter.

The ribbon bow was made with gorgeous ribbon
from the ribbon club at Really Reasonable Ribbon
 and decorated with a TH button!

Check out out challenge we have going on at the
