It's Not All Black and White

Chalkboard Butterflies

Doesn't all of that white stamping on black remind you of chalk on a blackboard? I did it all with detail white embossing powder so it would be nice and crisp. I can't remember the last time I used so much black on a card, but I'm pretty tickled with how it turned out. I echoed the three big curves with dots of black Stickles and tied on a big, happy yellow bow. What's In It?

Oh, I love it! Yes, very happy with the bright contrast and pretty yellow bow. The white on black does look just like a chalkboard. Love how you used the Stickles, too.
