It's Not All Just Black & White..............

Good morning all!
 Today is the day for the My Grafico DT ladies to post this weeks projects! 

Don't forget it's a new challenge at My Grafico this week so make sure you pop over & join in! 

It's ALWAY'S Anything Goes @ My Grafico! lol
Here's my card

The DT were given this lovely set to work with this week

It's the The Mod Linear Florals Collection by the very talented Cheri Wenger
I went for a monochrome card this week & I used just one of the flowers from the collection which I merged around this sentiment, from the lovely Anne @ Raindrop Echo Designs.

I printed the image out 3 times & cut out some of the flowers.
 I then layered them up using pinflair glue for dimension.
 I opted not to colour them this time around as I liked the effect that was created. 

I used a white square card blank for the card base then I added a layer of silver mini dot holographic paper, this is from the Southfield's Bits'n'Pieces range
I then added the striped DP which was from my stash.
(I'm making lot's of effort to use up all that stash that I've had for ever!) 
I wrapped a piece of ribbon around, threaded a silver charm on & knotted, before attaching to the card
The image was mounted onto black card then a layer of the holographic paper.
I used a corner die to cut out the decorative corners which I stuck on using a quickie glue pen. The glue pen is ideal for this kind of intricate shape!
Lot's of layering on this project!

To finish off I added a ribbon bow which was attached with a little heart pin!
I hope you like it!
