Double D - Only Black and White - Entry #2 - Friending While Drinking

Hello, Crafty Makers!
My second submission to the Double D Challenge:
"Only Black and White" is a true child of serendipity!  I was playing around with my new edge dies and after I made the cut, I realized that I should have turned the die the other way to get the effect I wanted.  
Friending While Drinking
 I decided to use a piece of black cardstock as backing and I cut it slightly longer than the base to form a lip.  It would have been more impactful if  I had embossed the die cut but I wasn't even sure this would actually end up as a project.  However, once I saw how pretty and understated this presentation was, I realized the embossing would have been a nice touch.  
 I added my stamp and sentiment, both of which were stamped with black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I am so proud of me because I resisted the urge to put the ladies in little black dresses.  The only embellishment is the addition of the small rhinestones in the center of my florets.

I like these types of challenges because you are forced to focus more on composition and typography to make your design statement.

Thanks for stopping by!
