Clean and Simple black/white cutout

Another card to share with you!

This is a clean and simple one (at least to me). I like how it turned out, and I'm getting so addicted to making these lollipop flowers (see my first one here) and black/white cards (thanks to Ann's previous challenge).

This card is for several challenges:
  1. The Fresh Batch - for Sketch Challenge #17 (SASSC17)
  2. Ann's Creative Nook - for GCA #43 Clean and Simple
  3. The Next Level (new challenge blog) - for Challenge #1 Cut-out and lollipop flower - sorry I didn't have all the materials (gesso), but I did the best I could
  4. KJ's Stamp Pad - for Color Chef Challenge #9
  5. and Heart Hugs - for EIC #38 Bacon Square Farm - I used the Cottage Black and Red Tissue Box Holder Sculpture Flower as my inspiration
My CardCard Details
Paper: Recollections and Bazzill cardstock

What a cool card. Love how you put the flower "inside" the card -- thanks for including the photo, I couldn't tell from the straight-on shot.
