If Friends Were Flowers

I'm on a roll today with another card.

I'd like to enter this card into the LOTV Monthly Challenge Use a Sentiment. Now unfortunately I've only just started purchasing LOTV so I don't have any sentiment stamps on their own yet, but I did buy the If Friends Were Flowers stamp and that comes with a sentiment. So here is the card..

I tried out a different technique, for me, on this card. I embossed some black card stock in white embossing powder and then "painted" bleach on the usual colored places. Then I matted them in white card stock. It's certainly the other way round for me in that respect as I usually matt in darker colors. It felt trippy as I was doing it and it took me right out of my comfort zone too!

Supply list:
Cardstock - Bazzill a black and white.
Paper - DCWV Love and Wedding
Stamps -  (Lili of the Valley) If Friends Were Flowers
Ink - VersaMark  
Embossing Powder - Martha Stewart, Dove
Dies – My Favorite Things, Labels 2; Spell Binders, Nesting Ovals
Bling- From my Stash

Thanks for looking.
Feel free to leave a comment good or bad I'm a big girl I can take it.
As always, Keep Well.
