Black and Vanilla - Baroque Motif

Everywhere I go lately I have been seeing beautiful cream and black - fabrics, suits, bags, bedding, even dishware. I love the elegance of black and white or black and cream and I think I'll be playing with them some more this weekend. However, here is the card I made this morning using my old Favorite Baroque Motif stamp set. This classic set has been a well loved part of my stamp collection since it first was introduced by Stampin' Up! and I've used it for cards for nearly every occasion! The Heat Embossing on this card is my favorite (and first) technique, too!

Here's a closer look at that gorgeous Antique Brad and the sparkle from the Heat Embossing. I mixed some Real Red Stampin' Pastel with Clear Embossing Powder  to emboss the flowers on this piece. All of the stamping done on this card was with VersaMark ink. And of course, I added a few of the Rhinestone Jewels to the flower centers!
