Cardabilities- Sketch # 53

Here is my first card as a member of the Design Team for the Cardabilities - Sketch # 53. I'm so excited! Anyways here is the information on my card. I love designing cards that are usually 5"x 7" size. I started off using black metallic paper then I used Prima Printery Collection for the rest. I cut down the Negative paper by Prima to 4 3/4"x 6 3/4" and the cut down the Signature paper from the same collection to 4 1/4" x

6 1/4". I distressed the edges using Blackbird Fluid Chalk by Clearsnap. Cut Groom Specialty paper by Stampin'Up to 1" x 6" and took the eyelet border punch and punch 1 side of the paper. Attached to the Signature paper just a little off the edge. I then cut and embossed large scallop oval using White metallic paper and used the Spellbinders Classic Scallop Oval large. I cut out large tag using Silver glitter paper and Spellbinders Ornate Artisan Tags & Accents. Then I cut out the black tag again using Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags & Accents using Groom Specialty paper. I stamped saying from the stamp set called "Special Blend" by Our Daily Bread Designs using platinum pigment ink and embossed using silver EP onto white metallic paper. I cut this out using a smaller tag die from the Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags & Accents. Then I cut out two flourishes using silver glitter paper using  Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags & Accents. I cut this in half and placed on card where shown. Cut out the leafy flourish from My Favorite Things Leafy Flourish die using Groom Specialty paper. Attached 3 I Am Roses as shown along with black pearls. Here is the inside of the card. I hope you enjoyed this card and don't forgot to check out the other designers as well!!
