Precious Friends

We want to thank all of you who joined us in our last challenge at Lexi's Creations: Ribbon and Lace. We had so many marvelous entries. If you are curious about the lucky winner, just click HERE.
Now we are ready for another challenge: Black, White and one other color. This may be easy for some of you and for some 'colorful' bloggers this just might be a challenge. Remember just one other color in addition to black and white. I chose to use the daisy digital stamp and the supplemental color is silver.
This shows the front of my card. I use several different sizes of this Spellbinders die. then distressed the flower layer. All of the layers were placed in increasing size and placed on black distressed cardstock. The cardstock was also distressed with silver ink. I added texture to the daisy using flocking powder on the leaves and stickles to the center of the flower. 
Here is the inside of my card with this precious sentiment. It was also cut from the same Spellbinders die and edged with a silver paint pen. This black cardstock was also distressed with silver before adding the sentiment.  Notice that stickles was added to the butterfly.

Materials Used:
Image and Sentiment: Lexi's Creations
Cardstock and DP: Michael's
