Belli Challenge #58



For this weeks challenge Chrissy posted this book cover. We were to get inspired by it to make a card. Took me a while on this one. I have all this glossy black cardstock that I've not used so it was easy to figure out the base card. As for the rest of it I had to think a bit more. When I first saw the book cover I thought of sorrow. Guess it was because the flower was hanging up side down, so I went with making a sympathy card. For my flower I inked it with VersaMark and stamped on a glossy page from a magazine. Next it was embossed with silver embossing powder, heat set, then cut out. Ric-Rac was added and the flower glued down. Also used the new silver hardward from SU. Purchased that last year and had not used it till now. Word is a single stamp by Antia.
