Thank you card for a special friend

Hello bloggers,

I am back again with a card that I made two weeks ago... 
I used these multi stamps from Prima  - clear stamps that I placed randomly on a big block and stamped it with black pigment ink. 
I have been seeing a lot of black and white cards and it was finally Lynn of whose card inspired me to get down to making one. 

The sentiment is handwritten (thanks to the encouragement I have received from all of you, I seem to be getting more confident with writing my sentiments) and the ribbons are from my stash. The faux gem flowers are  from Paper Mania.

I have snail mailed this card for a very special blogging buddy (sorry, cannot disclose the name as it meant to be a surprise)... pity it has still not reached her. It is going to be two weeks tomorrow since I mailed it. Sob, sob! Hopefully one day, it will arrive at it's destination.

Hope you like it. 

Hugs and thanks for viewing,

Wow, what a lovely card, Monica; so pretty - the black and white with a hint of red; always a perfect combination. I just love those swirls and the flowers - very nicely done! I know the recipient will love it. You know it's really a miracle the postal system that works worldwide; sometimes it takes a bit but I always hope it gets there, don't you? :-)

That is a shame that the mail takes so long for your friend to receive her lovely card from you. But when it gets there it will be sure to place a smile on her face!
