Play Date Cafe Challenge #40 - Take Two

I really like the colour challenge that Play Date Cafe have this week. Black and White are so good together and then that touch of Green.  I was chuffed to see that Hero Arts Twitter'ed yesterdays card.  It is nice to be recognised...
Anyway I still have a couple of ideas with this colour scheme and this was one of them
I started by stamping the Hero Arts Dots and Flowers background stamp onto white card and layering onto black.  Next I stamped the Star in versamark and embossed with a dark green powder.  I used square nestibilities to cut out the white and black card and rounded the corners.  Both the star and the sentiment are from a set by Rosie's Studio.  Added a couple of gems at each end.  Another one I'm also entering into Moxie Fab World - this time Clean and Graphic

Am pleased the weekend is here now... being sick has made this a bit of a funny week and I can do with the weekend just to get back on my feet.

Appreciate all the lovely comments people make and thanks for taking the time to visit me.
