CAS Sketch 233

Here is my card for a card sketch
with Michael Strong's cloisonné butterfly
in black and white to let you know that 
TOMORROW we have a 
Michael Strong Black & White blog hop.

You find the sketch challenge on the

I stamped the butterfly in versamark on parchment paper
and embossed it with black embossing powder and cut out
with the matching die. If you look at the background,
you might see that it is embossed with flowers.

The sentiment is from Michael Strongs Words stamps.

Thank you for looking
and see you tomorrow.
Have a creative day!

Love this card Hetty - the black and white is both dramatic and stark, and I love that you have softened that with the embossing
