Textures, Dies and Layers in BLACK and WHITE...

Hello Lovely Crafters. I've made this Black and White textured LOVE themed card using Creative Expressions dies from Sue Wilson's NOBLE and EXPRESSIONS Collections...
Lots of textures going on here, but my fave is that SW/EF background with the "Knotted Trellis" EF (that actually reminds me of Tying The Knot). So fitting for a wedding card, heh? I took the a diecut Adorned Square and cut it into four parts for the border look peeking out behind the LOVE heart. It's final look is dimensional and measures 6.5 x 6.5.
Stamps Used: None ; INK Used: None.  Papers: Black and White Heavy CS only
 Accessories: Creative Expressions Classic Adorned Squares, Expressions LOVE Dies by Sue Wilson;  Adhesive Pearls, Glitter White Tulle, Hat Pins I've put together with sparkly Bling, Pearls and Beads, Foam Adhesive.
Techniques:  Embossing, Layering

CE/SW DIES and "Knotted Trellis" Embossing Folder USED
