Fabulous Friday

It's Fabulous Friday. I think the Late Night Stampers challenge this week is to make a Mother's Day Card. So I guess this would make a good entry. If it's not Mother's Day than oopie, my bad.
I started this card just wanting to use Blush Blossom and Basic Black together and this is what the end result ended up being.
Some deets: I made the Basic Black background by stamping the Bella Toile BG stamp in Versamark and embossing with clear embossing powder and then spritzing with the new Vanilla Shimmer Smooth Spritz ( from the summer mini available May 1). When it dried, which was less than a minute (this stuff dries really fast), I used a tissue to wipe the spritz off of the embossed area. The Blush Blossom satin ribbon is the White satin ribbon that I colored with my Blush Blossom marker. To put the Jumbo grommet on the ribbon I just used my bone folder to bend down tabs and used Tombow adhesive to glue it on. I also used the Tombow to glue on the halfback pearls. Lastly, I sponged the Whisper White pieces with Basic Black ink.

Beautiful card! Love the blush blossom and black together.

Michelle, what a beautiful card! I am certainly going to miss Blush Blossom. But, I have to be honest, I never thought of pairing it with Basic Black. TFS!

How cool it is! Awesome color combination. Makes me want to go try something extraordinary like this!
