Black and White Roses

Anniversary-header
My Skirt Used for Inspiration
Another challenge in celebration of PTI's 9th Anniversary is Dress Up Inspiration.  I've intended for a couple years to make a card based on my jacket that has a watercolor design. However, when I went to get it for this challenge I noticed a lot of my black & white clothes. 
This is one of my favorite skirts & I immediately thought of PTI The Sweet Life, so the jacket will have to wait for another time. 
I stamped the black ink off before stamping the solid image, then used full strength black for the next layer & ended with white embossing the 3rd layer. The entire panel is brushed with Wink of Stella for a subtle shimmer.  The die cut, white embossed leaves are from PTI Turning a New Leaf & the sentiment is from PTI Twig Wreath.  
2016-02Finally used one of the gorgeous BasicGrey embellishments I bought years ago.  Luckily, hubby was able to remove the shank for me. My design was inspired by the February sketch at Deborah's Card Chain Challenge.  It's so rewarding to not only enjoy the creative process, but like the final result!  I'm also entering at Penny Black & More, Stamping Sensation & The Playground. Thanks for stopping by.
