Charisma #8 - Black, White & 1 other

Hi, it's time for another challenge at Charisma this week! The theme is Black, White and 1 other!

Buy our digi stamps here...

I've used this lovely B&W flower image from Digistamp Boutique called Modern Flower 1. I've used my sewing machine for the stitching and a swiss dots embossing folder for the backgroud embossing. The sentiment is a Personal Impressions stamp, and the ribbon and gems are from stash.
Thanks for looking! :)
