I Love You --- A study in Black and White ATSM 110

Photo challenges are interesting.  They leave a lot to interpretation.  This one, from the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge, for example:
What do you see?  Do you see a black and white flower or do you see a ballerina putting on her dance shoes?  It really doesn't matter when you're making the card.  It's the impression that one has that one attempts to translate into a card.  

I chose to use my modelling paste and a stencil of hexagonals to put a pattern onto a piece of Whisper White.  Then I stamped a little bee in black Memento ink.  On another piece of Whisper White I stamped the little flower from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and used the coordinating framelit to cut it out.  I glued that near the bottom left of the paste pattern.  Finally I stamped "I Love You" near the top right of the card.  Love those simple greetings from the hostess Good Greetings stamp set!

I used a base cardstock of Naturals White and then used the Woodgrain embossing folder on a piece of Basic Black before adhering that to the base.  Then I attached the Whisper White piece and the card was done.  Clean and simple and my impression of the photo.
