Mainly Black

Hi, and welcome to my late night post to show you my card for the latest challenge over at ATSM.
This week our theme is -

CAS

and here is my card


I made this with one or two challenges in mind as well as this week's sponsor which is -

Shery is offering a $10 gift certificate to the winner.

Over at Time Out they are Casing a card by Kim Makortoff and this is Kim's card.


I took out some black card and thought straight away of the challenge at Less is More, which is 'Predominately Black' so that was my starting point.
I stamped and then heat embossed in white on vellum some flowers from STAMPlorations Eclectic Florals set and from SU Stippled Blossoms. After cutting out, I shaped them with an embossing tool and foam and rearranged them on the black panel, not right so I took them all off!
Next I embossed some swirls in clear EP and then arranged the flowers on top. A little better but it still lacked something so I sprinkled some chunky white EP then added the flowers and a few sprigs of bright green punched leaves.
Job done!
The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted, stamped and embossed in detail white.

OK, that's about it, so why not check out the rest of the DT's inspiration and join us this week over at ATSM.

I would like to join in at -
