Greetings again - it is always great to know you have visited.
I needed to make a quick card the other day to go with a gift that was very late in being posted!! The gift was packaged in a wee black box, which I had tied a silver/white ribbon around, which is what inspired the colour choice for the card.
The base is black - from my stash of card-stock that I bought from a local printer. I found I had only a sliver of silver shim left, so halved it to create a border for the white pearlised card, which I embossed with the Textile Texture folder by Cuttlebug.
This photo gives some idea of the sheen on the card.
The Dragonfly is a digi stamp from Priscillastyles Store - I love it, and enjoy just how versatile digi's can be. It was printed it twice and just the wings layered to give added dimension after painting it with iridescent blue Twinkling H2O paint
Don't you just love the detail on these wings!!
The card was finished with the sentiment silver embossed and the clear rhinestones added. I must confess that after all the photographs were taken, I added three tiny rhinestones to the body of the dragonfly.
I am very happy with this result - I never thought even a couple of years ago that I would ever make a black card, but things change!!
I have used this layout on several cards recently and love how versatile it is.

Thanks for calling. May your day be blessed!!
