#10 Challenge Joan's Garden

This is # 10 challenge for Joan's Garden. It is a bit different than the other challenges.  The rules for entering are to create a card using lace, flowers, pearls and an embossing folder. The card should also be Black and White. Here's my card:

The embossing folder is from Darice and can be found at Crafters Companion. I inked up the folder with Black dye ink and then took a rag and wiped it clean, put in a white card and dry embossed with my Big Shot. It tuned out to be a light gray. I adhered some white lace to the left side of the card with a glue stick.
I added three white paper flowers with black brads. I also added three stamped images and they are all from Impression Obsession. The bird was inked with Black dye ink and then swished back and forth onto an acrylic block before I cut it out and mounted it. The White Fringe Circle is a die from Memory Box and can be found on Joan's  site. I also used a corner punch on two corners at the right sides. Pearls were added above the Daisy stamp.
For more challenge cards and to see Joan's products go here.
What is different about this challenge is that we get to vote. Anyone who enters a card votes-no randomn drawing. Come join in the fun and vote for your favortite card!
