I thought that black and white would look quite classy so I embossed black card cut it into four strips and attached them to the front of a square card blank, attaching them alternately as embossed and de-bossed (the other way over LOL!). I added a die cut border along the bottom, covered with wide black organza ribbon and then made a bow to attach to the right hand side using a diamanté ribbon slider. I made up a lollipop flower using 5 circles, 3 plain and 2 patterned, crumpled them up, unravelled them, joined them all together with a brad in the centre, crumpled them up and unravelled them again, then attached the diamanté heart to the centre. The swirl was die cut and then glittered before attaching behind the flower. A couple of extra gems finished it off.

Not sure yet if this is the look I am going to go for, or if I prefer a card with an image, but I still have plenty of time to try out different things.
Lovely card Colette. I like what you have done with the embossed panels - alternating embossed and debossed - very effective. I also like the monochrome scheme, and all the little 'blingy' touches. Elegant!
This is beautiful Colette. Very classy, I love the flower.
Look forward to seeing your next option.
