MC Jan/11 - Black & White - Bonne Fete

I really enjoyed making this card tonight. It combines so many elements and techniques... And I love that my patchwork is skewed... It started out straight and then I said NO and skewed them. BIG GRIN

You've got wet & dry embossing doing various techniques, handmade flowers, glitter, brads & eyelets, ribbons, buttons & pearls, sheesh and the list goes on and on... so just click on card to see all the descriptions and some closeups etc. Enjoy

I'm also using a Quietfire Design sentiment.

And it fits for a whole bunch of challenges.
