Nearly black and white

I was lucky enough to win at Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge last week and I wanted to join in again with one of the lovely images that I won. This week's challenge is to make a black and white card where the only colour used is on the image. When I saw this week's Card Patterns Sketch I knew just how I wanted to do my card! I'm also entering it for A Spoonful of Sugar's Floral Delight challenge.

The card is put together directly onto the white card, the dotty embossed borders are matted onto black card and have dotty ribbon added. The centre of the card uses some more of the mesh ribbon that I bought recently. The dotty flowers and the sentiment are from also Craftwork Cards. When I put it together I realised that the dots are silver rather than white, hopefully they still give a b&w impression:). Image is called Beyond the Garden Gate and it's cut out with a Nestie and set at an angle on its frame.
