It's A Friday "Two-fer!"

Welcome to the Friday Blogger's Challenge...This week I combined "two" challenges into one card.  The Blogger's Challenge this week was (It's All About Texture) using texture/embossing plates.  I decided to combine the challenge with the Color Inspiration Challenge over at KWernerDesign as I really liked the color combo.  It's my very first time ever doing the Color Inspiration and I am really happy with how it turned out..             The colors were: Basic Black, Basic Gray and Whisper White.  I started with a Card Base of Basic Black and then Stamped the Flower from (Fifth Avenue Floral) with Basic Gray ink stamping some off once to create a slightly lighter flower.  I then added a strip of Basic Black cs ran through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dot embossing folder (my all time favorite).  Then I ran a piece of Basic Gray through the Cuttlebug using the Rows of Flowers and brushed them with Craft White ink.  I layered this to a piece of Whisper White that I had distressed the edges.  Next I stamped the sentiment (SU Sincere Salutations) with Basic Gray ink on Whisper White cs, punched it out with an Oval Punch (Marvy) and ran it through with the CB/Swiss Dot Embossing Folder.  I layered that to a Scallop Oval (Marvy) of Basic Gray cs and pierced the scallops.  I then stamped one flower with VersaMark and embossed it with Black Diamond EP from JudiKins - It sparkles in real life way more then it shows on the scan.  I colored some of the petals with a Copic Marker (Toner Gray No.5) and cut it out. I added a piece of Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon and mounted my images with foam mounting tape to complete the card.
