Color Pop Thinking of You

I just love color don't you?  So many combinations that work beautifully together, and black and white are a perfect example of that.  Having said that I just love to add a pop of color to provide a focal point and contrast as in this 'Thinking of You' card. 

To make this, I first embossed The Rubber Cafe' Pattern Royale
background stamp in white on black cardstock. This piece was
matted using white Pugnacious Paper from The Rubber Cafe' that I adhered
to a black cardstock base.  The "Thinking of You" sentiment from the
Fabulous Phrases set was embossed in black on pink cardstaock.
I inked this piece then attached it to the card.

To make the oval framed flower, I stamped and embossed
the oval from The Rubber Cafe' Card Labels set, black
embossing on white and white embossing on black, also
stamping and embossing the Medium Daisy in the center
of the black oval like so...

I cut out the entire white oval, but trimmed around the inner
oval on the black piece, then adhered the black piece to
the center of the white piece to create the finished frame.

To finish, the Leaf Swirls stamp was stamped and
embossed in black, on the white cardstock, then fussy
cut out and attached with a button and twine using
Scrap Happy Glue.  I added three Pearl Jellie Dots 
 to accent the sentiment.

Thanks for stoppin' by the Cafe' today!

I love how you used the Background stamp to create your patterned paper. I had to take a double-take when I first looked at this card. Nice choice in blk/white too!
