Fit for Royalty

Flourishes offered up a challenge for crafters to create a card "Fit for Royalty". So I had a try at it! I went for elegance because that is what Flourishes stamps remind me of. Black and white is almost always an elegant combination. I used some new Making Memories Wedding paper and my Brushed Silver card stock. I wanted to use a precious metal color and went with silver, simply because I prefer it to gold. I added pearls, both silver and black and used a luxurious satin ribbon.
Because I used lots of black, I didn't have too much room for a sentiment. I solved this problem by using a rub-on on my ribbon. I made it a birthday card to celebrate Stamp Simply's 100th challenge.

Here are the details:

Stamps: Thinking of You (Flourishes)
Paper: Basic Black, Brushed Silver, Whisper White, MM Wedding dp
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Nestabilities, Scallop Edge punch, M's white satin ribbon, M's black pearls, M's silver pearls, Chit Chat rub-ons

All products are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise posted.

ETA: Check this out! I won, based on merit, not just random drawing!!!
