Paper Pretties Day 2 - Inspired by a stamp set!

Hey there all you people out in Blogland. This is the last of the Paper Pretties Previews for the month of April. This set being previewed today is Inspirational Quotes.

I have done up a clean and simple (for me) card  for todays preview. I found this beautiful black and white print paper. I LOVE the simplicity of black and white. I think it looks so pretty. I cut out the blcack Bazill paper (Raven I think) with a Round Nestie. I stamped the quote and butterfly from the set using white Imprintz Ink and then embossed with detail white EP. I then used the next size up Round Nestie and cut out a white circle. The last layer(s) are the same size black and white Lacey Circle Nestie. I cut the white parts all around the Nestie (one side only), and then laced it in with the Lacey Circle Black cut out. I added a touch of the black pearls around where the white edge was cut, and then a black bow. It was very quick and simple, and turned out so elegant (IMHO).
