Sweet Stampn Challenge SWEET AND SIMPLE

Good Morning,
Today we are doing a new challenge for myself.  Sweet Stampn's Challenge of SWEET AND SIMPLE
You would think that simple would be easier than some complicated, multi layered card.  WRONG

I found that one had to achieve all the same things with the use of a great deal less.  Balance, depth, demension, and most of all appeal.

I have done a sympathy card for this one.

The supplies I used are as follows:
Bazzil Card Stock in Black and White
Glossy Accents  by Ranger
Liquid Pearls by Ranger  - White Opal
Cuttle Bug Embossing folder from the "Love is in the Air", set.
Memento Ink
Pop Dots
Scor Tape
Black Satin Ribbon 1/2 inch from my stash
A bobble from my stash
A butterfly stamp by Magenta

This is the card in its' initial construction, before I used the Liquid Pearls and Opalized it.

Here you can see how the card took on demension with the White opal add overall.  The card is not ivory in colour, it is still a true white.  I had to distort the light, enable to show the effect for you.

Here is a close-up of the embossed area for you to see.

Thank you for stopping in and reviewing my card.  Don't forget to check out Sweet Stampn and the cards created for this challenge by their design team.
