Black, White, Silver and Sparkly too.

It's my sis-in-law's birthday on Monday and I thought I create something in black and white for her as I did last year.

There wasn't enough light to capture the ribbon and the flowers so I might have better luck tomorrow.
The image is from Joanna Sheen's CD 'Dancing with Shadows', the paper is from Craftwork Cards, the black roses and blossom and the sparkly beads are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I cut the flourishes on the Cricut and they both have tiny black seed pearls attached too.

I think this card will fit our MSE challenge set by Fifi Folle and I would like to enter this card in the following:-
