Black and White wedding card

We were recently invited to a wedding that had a black and white invite so I thought I'd make a somewhat-matching card that we'll put a gift card into (it's a wedding gotten to by airplane- we're not taking a big gift!)

It's a bit hard to see in the flat photo but the flower petals are all curled... though by the time the card gets to the wedding... well, at least I know they started that way.

Cardstock: (Whisper White) Stampin' Up, (Black) Michaels
Stamps: (En Francais, Antique Background) Stampin' Up
Ink: (Whisper White, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Misc: (Brads) Making Memories, (Cloth Brad) Bazzill Basics Paper, (Tattered Flowers Die) Tim Holtz/Sizzix

  7. I'm going to assume that when they see this card, they'll wish you had made the invitations. This is STUNNING! I'm sure the petals will hold up just fine and they'll treasure this handmade sentiment. Lovely job and beautiful work on the background as well.
