GinaK black and white Challenge

This is a card I made for the Gina K black and white card challenge. I think this was the quickest card I've ever made. As soon as I read about the challenge, I knew the ribbon I was going to use and then everything else just fell into place. The ribbon is from Michaels and I purchased it a few months ago. I almost talked myself out of buying it but glad I didn't because I knew it would come in handy one day. Anyway, the poinsettias are from the A Year of Flowers set and the sentiment is from the Say it with Flowers set; both sets designed by Melanie Muenchinger. I used Brilliance graphite black ink to stamp the poinsettia 6 six times because I cut out the center portion from 3 of the flowers and adhered them to the other 3 using foam strips for dimension. I also used foam strips to adhere the flowers to the cards. I used the Fiskars threading water punch on the edges of a strip of white card stock. The greeting was stamped and then punched out using a Marvy oval punch. Then strips of ribbon to finish off the card.
