Lone flower

Yes, I know, another black and white card. I love this color combo, or lack-of-color combo. I stamped the flower and stem 3x, two in gray and one in black. Lots of texture on this card because I used two different embossing folders. Enjoy!

This card is for a few challenges:
  1. Flourishes - for Timeless Tuesday Challenge #21 A Sketch
  2. Heart Hugs Designs - for EIC #42 Tony Charlie's Photo Gallery - I used this image as my inspiration: Yellow Flower Photograph
  3. Rosie-Dee's - for Challenge #41 Black and White
  4. The Pink Elephant - for Challenge #21 Favorite Color Combo - Mine is black and white and a little bit of color
  5. Daisy May Challenges - for As You Like It Challenge
Card Details
Paper: Recollections, The Angel Company free paper download
Stamp: Flourishes Nasturtiums set
Tools: Cuttlebug, embossing folders, Nestabilities
