Today Im sharing a have a Black and White Card that was created  for the Inspirational Challenge over at SCS #IC492I'm using the Creative Expressions Greek Island Collection dies by Sue Wilson.
I love the opening of the Trellis mid section here. So many possibilities as it is a separate die itself. Ive layered it multiple times for the depth. This great checkered paper is from a (fax-size- type of large roll) that I found at a Goodwill a couple of years ago and its still going. The CE Greek Collection matching Tag die holds this ODBD "Mom" sentiment perfectly. The white satin bow was hand made and pearls were adhered to the center.
Stamps: ODBD - "Mom", from Year 2010
Paper: White CS, Checkered Roll
Paper Size: 5x7
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black Archival pigment ink
Accessories: CE/Creative Expressions Greek Island Collection Background; Corner, Border and Tag; CE Finishing Touches Trailing Ivy dies by Sue Wilson, White Satin Ribbon, Pearls
Techniques: Layering, Dry Embossing
These gorgeously detailed CE/SW Cutting Dies can be FOUND at CE, HERE. 
There are lots of gorgeous samples and always loads of great inspiration.
