2013 Artisan Entry Blog Hop: Day 5

This card is my most favorite of the 5 I made.  Since we don't get our entry projects back, I want to recreate this one.  I whole heartedly love every element of this card. I love the black ribbon on the black paper.  I'm not usually a color on color kind of person, but it has such a unique elegance about it. 
It's pretty straightforward...I bleached the pink, watercolored the flowers, and used an embossing folder for the back ground.
