Bold black and white birthday card

Hello, friends!  Sharing a card that doesn't need too much explanation today.  It was my mother's birthday card earlier this fall.  My mom loooooves black and white, so there's ample amounts of those colors here.  I had to add a bit of green to liven things up a little.


American Crafts makes a pretty rosette ribbon (you can find some HERE at Create For Less, an online store) that I used to make the flower on this card.  Just wound it around into a circle, secured it to a black circle die cut with Aleene's Tacky Glue, and topped it off with a pretty gem.

Thank you so much for coming by!
