I was just playing around today. I was at my friend Jen's blog and saw the amazing black and white card that she made. I decided to let that be my inspiration. Well this card is not at all what I had planned when I started out. I had a whole different stamp set picked out and everything. I even had my wild rose images stamped and cut out. But it was not to be.........but I did use those images for something else so it will be posted later.
I used the paisley background with craft white then i embossed it with clear ep. I couldn't get my original images to work with it so.....I started tearing some strips to break up the background. (I like it) But apparently the roses weren't thrilled with the new developments. So I found a stamp that is nice and placid by nature. (Apparently more than Jen's color scheme has rubbed off on me)
I adore this stamp set and couldn't part with it when it retired. It's an old standard for me, it's there to lean on when the mojo is out taking a stroll.
Added the ribbon, who doesn't love dots? Placed the image underneath and called it finished.

I need to find a way to get more than one card done in a sitting. Maybe if I chatted less on SCS, Nah that isn't going to happen. LOL
