Variation on the Last Card



I really liked how well the flowers and the sentiment went together on that last card.  But I thought the Neon inks needed more pride of place. So I did a variant layout on a black card:




I swiped the Hero Arts Neon inks DTP, then stamped the flowers in Versafine Onyx Black and fussy-cut them out.  I white heat-embossed the sentiment on the inside of the card behind a cutaway.  

It occurs to me now, I should have stamped and embossed the flowers in white, to match the sentiment. Oh well.  Still came out pretty good.  If I feel up to it I might try it again -- but not tonight. :)

I will also enter this one in the Casology Neon Challenge.

Your bright colored flowers look great against the black - love the cut out corner design to show the sentiment inside!
