Linda has asked us to make a black and white card with a pop of color for the Ways To Use It Challenge. I sponged/inked some paper to make my poinsettia.
Here's what I used:
Paper: Gina K. Pure Luxury in Black and White, unknown Bazzill scrap
Ink: Distress Inks in Peeled Paint, Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers
All the other stuff: Big Shot Pro; Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die; Couture Creations Tied together embossing folder; Cuttlebug Holly embossing folder; Distress Stains in Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass and Brushed Pewter; sponges, water spritzer, heat gun, Ranger Glue n' Seal, Distress Stickles Dry Glitter in Clear Rock Candy, K & Company Adhesive Gems, paper piercer, Spare Parts by the Paper Studio Antique Gemstone Brads, craft mat

So elegant and lovely:)
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

What a striking card Lee-Anne! The black and white are elegant as a backdrop to that stunning green flower! WOW..love the sparkly quality of it and the fancy pearl center. And then you had to top it off with the oval pearls and all the rhinestones...incredible!
