Black & Vellum

This is a card I made for the latest challenges from Stampin' Sisters in Christ and Our Daily Bread Designs.  The Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge #99 is to create a card that depicts the sharp contrast between black and white or ivory.  ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #69 is to use piercing on your card.



I tried something new with the sentiment panel and I'm not sure I like it, but I decided to keep it.  I simply cut one of the labels 10 die cuts in half and flipped one over to layer behind the other.  Oh well, here's to trying something new:)






Stamps:  Path of Life & Scripture collection 1 (Our Daily Bread Designs)
Paper:  black cs, vellum
Ink:  black (memento)
Other:  rhinestones (kaisercraft), paper piercer, Labels 10 (spellbinders)

What a beautiful image, and a perfect sentiment to go with it! I love the pierced corners, I need to remember to try that sometime.

Sara, the background reminds me of tulle (sp?) It is so soft and delicate and I like what you did with the label.
