Black and White

Hi All
I don't very often do black and white cards so decided to stretch myself a bit and have a go.  The challenge on Little Claire's Designs was the push I needed to have a go.
Here is the result.
As you can see I went for a double twisted easel design.  The flower is the Gerbera stamp from Little Claire.  I wanted the flower to be larger than the original image.  I therefore stamped the flower a couple of times onto silver paper.  Each flower was then cut into several pieces and I stuck the pieces to the outside of a 2" circle.  I then stamped the flower image onto white card and stuck this over the top.  A glittery brad completed the centre.
The other side of the card was done using a butterfly that I die cut using my big shot.
Finally I made a stopper for the easel.  I embellished this with some punched butterflies (they are glittery but doesn't show up very well) and a stamped sentiment also from Little Claire.
The flowery backing paper was some I had in my stash and I believe it was Papermania's Capsule Collection.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Little Claire's Designs - black and white
Kelley Kid's Digi Stamps - black and white

Thanks for looking.  Please feel free to leave any comments
