In The Black

Today's card is a bit different from my norm, it's rare these days not see a stamped image on my cards, however I wanted to enter the Come & Get It Challenge this week as they have a sweet sketch and a stamped image didn't really fit. Mind you, by the time I get this posted I might be too late, where does the time go?! I love black & white, but couldn't resist a tiny splash of colour with the gem!

White card embossed with Cuttlebug's 'Divine Swirls' embossing folder
Papers - Papermania Capsule Collection
The squares (
'Inverted Scallops') and tag were cut using Spellbinders  dies 
The border ('Layered Arches') and butterfly were punched using Martha Stewart punches
Lace - WOC
Ribbon - Hobbycraft

Sketch - Come & Get It
'Use Black Cardstock' - Creative Card Crew
