Basically Black and White

Me again, you don't see me for a week then you get two posts in a day, it's just like waiting for a bus to arrive.
Anyhow, this is the second card for my monochrome class, and I have reverted back to my favourite combination of black and white. The stamp is by Penny Black, and is stamped onto pearl card. I have layered it four times to add some dimension to the card. The backing is the same pearl card which has been embossed using my faithful Cuttlebug, and the card has been completed with ribbon and gems for added sparkle.
Just for a change I didn't use a challenge sketch for this card, but I would like to enter it in;
Lexi's Creations - embossing
Crafts & Me - petals and pearls
Totally Paper Crafts - keep it plain and simple
Simon Says Stamp - paper piecing
I hope you like this card, and I'm keeping number 3 a surprise ready for the class - I don't want the lovely ladies to be too prepared.
See you soon,
