Simply Black and White

I made  another card for CAS-ual Friday's challenge 36 this week, which is to use only black and white on your card...no other color allowed. I am also going to enter this card as a second card, in Less is More's challenge 51, Cut it Out,  which this week is to make a card with an aperture(window, hole...I didn't know what that word was until recently...yes, there...I admit it:)!!).   I opted to use a pretty  Hero Arts background stamp to make my card, and this is what I came up with:
I stamped (after using anti static bag) on my black paper with versamark...then white embossed.  Die cut the window with Papertrey Ink Mat die.  I put the black/white embossed piece on the card and stamped the sentiment, BEFORE popping up this panel.   The black paper was not top grade, heavy paper, so I cut a piece of chipboard and mounted it to give it real stability and "pop" as well...again...AFTER the sentiment(just a tip).   And here's a slightly angled view:
 The stamps are Hero Arts...the background Flower Dot Pattern, the sentiment Truly Appreciated.
Simply done.  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
