Black and White Happy Birthday For Creative Crew

This card was made for a sweet person. It's part of my Creative Crew Challenges for October. (CCREW1013CF) You can see the rest of them in my Splitcoast Stamper Gallery

I decided I needed a dramatic card, and I'm not good at water coloring these gorgeous flowers,  so I began by embossing white onto black. I used the Apothecary Art Stamp set and the Big Shot with Apothecary Accents Framelits. I used my Embossing Buddy to make sure there were no bits of White Embossing Powder clinging to my Basic Black card stock.

Here is a close up of my "flag." I used pieces of Modern Medley designer series paper to mimic the large background flag that was made of the Fancy Fan Embossing onto Whisper White. I love how this looks. In the middle is a piece of 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta ribbon. 

What do you think? Dramatic? I think the sweet person I made this for will appreciate it! Please leave your comments below.
