Black and White Abbey card

Happy Saturday all!  I'm so glad it is finally the weekend!!! I had to unwind last night so I decided to craftt!!! :)  I made one card and started another.  I feel like I'm having withdrawals because I've been so busy with work and family events that I have not had much time for this.  So I wanted to share a card I made in response to a challenge that Jo Paperdrama and Rina Scraptress from You Tube had.  This was just a fun challenge to create a card using black and white.  I had so much fun creating this card because I've been wanting to try this out with copic coloring!  The stamped image I used is "Abbey" from the Greeting Farm Stamp.  I've had her for a while but have never colored her up.  I thought she would be fun for this project!  The colors I used were the cool Blacks which I use all the time for coloring black hair-C1, C3, C5, C7 and C9.  The paper collection I used is from My Mind's Eye "Meadowlark" and it is a fun paper pad with all black and white beautiful papers.  The doily was in my stash and I sprayed it with Tattered Angels "Route 66".  This was a fun color and had lots of gray and silver shimmer.  I edged the doily and paper with Tim Holtz distress ink in "Black Soot".  The black roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the silver flower I made using petals I picked up in the $1 bin at Michael's.  I layered two on top of each other and then added a bigger recollections black rhinestone bling in the center.  The cute little nylon butterfly and crochet trim is from Karla S001's store on Etsy.  I had so much fun making this card in the black and white and can't wait to make more!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend! :)
