Light and Dark, Stampin Sisters in Christ

The challenge this week at Stampin Sisters in Christ is Light and Dark.  I chose Black and White for  mine.  I used a 5x7 cuttlebug folder Madison for the background and inked up the top side with Marvy Black ink before I ran it through the Vagabond. The image and die cut are from the Cast all your cares from Just Rite and it matches the labels 16 nestie.   I added the Celtic oval frame and used the flourishes in the center also from Cheery Lynn.  I also used Olive leaves and Fanciful flourish and added some stickles to the leaves.  I added a black and white prima fabric flower and colored a pearl with a black copic marker.  I added a Martha Stewart butterfly with black pearls down the center.,  I finished the card with a black holographic border.  I'm also entering this card in the Cheery Lynn add a flourish challenge.
