Casing myself with a classy colour combo

Hope you had a good weekend. MIL and FIL came over to visit on Saturday and so I took a break from studying so that MIL and I could have a good crafting session. My MIL wanted to have a go at making this card from a few weeks back and so we decided to keep the stamps and the layout the same but alter the colour combo. So today I'm mainly casing myself, lol.

Stamp sets: Baby Blossoms, Something to Celebrate
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Craft Whisper White, Versamark
DSP: Neutrals Patterns
Seam Binding Ribbon: Crumb Cake
Embossing Folder: Perfect Polka Dots
Other: Beveled Windowpanes, Brads (Neutrals), Gold EP, Black EP

The instructions are as for the other other card here, with the exception of the image behind the pane. I wanted to stamp onto Black but knew that the only thing that would really show up would be the Craft Whisper White, so I stamped the base rose in that ink and left it to dry. After a quick blast with the Heat Tool to ensure that it was truly dry, I then stamped the rose detail with Versamark (using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for position) and heat embossed with Gold EP. The sentiment was also stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Black EP.

Here's the detail:

And this is my MIL's version using Basic Black, Whisper White and Melon Mambo. She used Silver EP for the detail on her flowers.

Back to the books again now for tomorrow's exam!
