Paper Players sketch challenge

The Paper Players have a sketch challenge this week that I wanted to participate in.  I had a vision in my mind of what I wanted.  I started cutting paper and putting everything together and my end result was not exactly what I thought it would be.  The flowers look a bit weird being cut apart.  Oh well, live and learn on what works and what doesn't.

Stamps:  Build A Blossom
Paper:  white, black
DSP:  paper pack from Hobby Lobby
Ink:  Black, Marina Mist
Accessories:  polka dot embossing folder, brads, dazzling diamonds, ribbon (non-SU)
All products are SU unless otherwise noted.

The picture does not do this card any justice.  The black looks much better in real life.  I think because the photograph was dark and I lightened it up with my photo shop program, that it dimmed the card color. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

I can tell this is a great-looking card, Pam. I know what you mean about having an idea in your head and it doesn't translate to the paper...but I still think it's a cool card. I love the boldness of the black & white! As always, thanks for playing with the Paper Players this week!
