GorJuss and I create monochrome with a 'pop' of colour

Hi guys!
I'm back again to share a card with you all, as well as some news. Two of my cards last week were mentioned as honourable mentions :) I'm a little bit excited! This one and this one for the Ribbon Carousel and the Play Date Cafe. I had a play with their challenges again this week....
A fairly simple card for me... I used a black card base, which is layered with a white card base with a bunch of machine stitching all around it. The patterned paper is from Echo Park, For the Record collection. I added a white satin ribbon with a pink button. The Gorjuss stamp is watercoloured using my Stampin' Write Markers and a blender pen, in Basic Black, Basic Grey, Sahara Sand, Melon Mambo and Blush Blossom. I added three little black rhinestones and a sentiment from Hero Arts. 
I am entering this into the Ribbon Carousel Sketch Challenge, and also the Play Date Cafe, black, white and hot pink colour challenge. 
Thanks for popping by!

Congrats on your honorable mentions, Jess! Whoo hoo!

I like the stitching around your sweet girl image, and the way you've colored her.

Thanks for playing along with us at The Play Date Cafe!
