Accents in black

 Hallo,
   A rainy saturday here in NW Florida - we got back from a nice long walk the DH, puppy and I and soon after it started raining. As I got all my cleaning chores done earlier in the week and the rain cancelled my yard chores, I headed to the craft room. Believe it or not I am almost through with the massive Christmas ornament project that I started before Christmas.....
   I also finished off this card for the current Tuesday challenge over at Flourishes which was to use something black, black accents. Check it out here - www.flourishes.org/blog/ - play along and you could win all 4 of the stamp sets in this last weeks new release - like I did with the  release challenge this time around!!!! :) Happy, Happy,Happy ME!!!!
   I stamped the dress form (Flourishes of course) onto some pale yellow DP - the back side was used to cut the flower rosettes and the corner accents - it has a differnt pattern and a darker yellow.
   I colored the dress form with prismacolor pencils and fussy cut it out . The black frame, corner accents and the 'cut-and-fold' shapes are all Spellbinders dies.
  I also used a black ribbon and some black pearl drops made with a tulip fabric paint pen(I accidently smeared the one corner a bit - wanted to get a picture while the rain let up and I also needed to get my pre-night-shift nap in so I was in a hurry :( hopefully its not too noticable.....
   All for today - off to work....
        Have a great weeknd!!!

Love the composition. The black frame with the damask background is the perfect touch to show off your Flourishes Dress Form stamp!
