CAS-ual Friday: Pastels & Black

It's been such a hectic day with lots of interruptions. Sometimes I can make a card like this in half an hour and other days it takes place over a couple of hours :D. I guess that's life!
CAS-usal Friday's challenge is to make a card using pastels and black. Here's my card (finally!):
 The flowers (UNITY's Best Wishes & Blooms) were stamped twice. Once on the card stock to cut out and a second time on another piece of white card stock to shade with distress inks before being cut out and popped on the main image with foam tape.
The background paper was made by first shading my white card stock with Spun Sugar (Tim Holtz) and then stamping in black with two of the images from Papertrey Ink's Spiral Bouquet.

  5. Beautiful card! The glaze touch is so pretty! I completely forget about that shading while leaving the die in place. Nice reminder.
