Black and White card.

Hi everyone, apologies again for being MIA! I'm just not getting a lot of craft time lately, we are getting some nice weather now so have been spending a bit more time outdoors enjoying the sunshine.

My card today is for Annabelle Stamps blog challenge 'Say It In..... Black and White'. I realised after I'd made the card that it also loosely fits the monthly challenge sketch, also on Annabelle Stamps blog, so it's a 'twofer' entry.

My main image is a Stamping Bella stamp called Anabel Lulu and the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set - added some Kaisercraft black rhinestones either side of the sentiment. I also used a Quickutz 'Diamonds and Dots' embossing folder and added some pearls for a touch of elegance along with the black organza ribbon. The large heart brad is from Craft Affair and I just twisted the ribbon between the brad prongs. The Lacey Circles is a new die from Nestabilities and I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the black cardstock.

Here's a close-up of the birthday cake, I put some Frosted Lace Stickles on it for some sparkly icing.

Hope you like my card today, I'd love to hear what you think of it!

ps. To the idiot/s who keep trying to post spam comments to my blog.......give it up, I have comment moderation so your comments will never be posted here! Stop wasting your time and mine!
