I just can't help myself - I LOVE black and cream cards! The background image is a large shipping tag that I embossed one side with one of Tim's texture folder and rubbed black ink over. The Daisy from the Nature Silhouette III was stamped in black and I think this really makes the detail pop on the image! The hinge is from one of Tim's Sizzix dies. If you look at the next pic you can see the "Dream" stamp that I am so in love with!!!
The background was created using the large image in the Sketch of Roses II stamp sheet - I inked with Antique Linen ink and then used markers to color some of the background. Since I used the AL distress ink I was able to add some gold embossing powder at the top. The hinge is the faux metal technique.
The Rose is a FABULOUS grunge paper ribbon Rose - can I say easy - here's a link to the tutorial on Lynn's blog - give it a try you'll be surprised how fast you can make these!!! The only thing that I did not like was the added liquid pearls on the rose - I'll skip that step next time!
Take a little to time see the the other designers created:
