Black & White Elegance

Yeah, got together with a couple of friends to craft today! After having no craft since before Christmas, it was good to get together and chat while we craft away. Jane made 3 card to Joyce's one and LOL, I just coloured images because I like to make my cards home where all my crafty goodies are. I find it easier than lugging the kitchen sink with me which is just about what I do normally!!
I also caught up with Doug and Shirley for coffee and an early lunch and LOL, Thursday night is our night out with Joyce & Doug for tea, so no cooking tonight either.
My card for today is another attempt at making a card for a challenge that was to include black, white and silver. I am much happier with this one and will actually enter it this time, LOL.
I've used SU Basic Black with the fold at the top of the card, a layer of silver metallic paper and then a DP from a stack of A5 papers called Soiree from Rosie's Studio. I ink distressed the edges of the DP with Whisper White ink. I added a black piece cut with a ribbon style punch. The image ( Kanban stamps, The Cavendish Ladies) was stamped onto Whisper Whtie card using Basic Black and cut out and popped up with foam dots, I finished off with two little rows of white pearls also from SU.
I am entering this into the following:
