Without You, There's No Color In My Life

This card was inspired by the sketch and challenge at Twisted Sketches.

I was driving down the road one night, on my way to work, thinking about card ideas, when the sentiment came to me...."Without you, there is no color in my life." (It's so strange sometimes, the things we are doing, when a creative idea comes to us!) The next morning, I stopped on my way home from work and bought some black & white paper, and this card came out of my head and onto paper. I love the elegant look of black and white cards, and the sentiment seemed to fit perfectly.

All Items to create the card are from my stash, except the new paper. The rose image is from Birds Cards. The rose in the center is pop dotted to add dimension.
