Black, white and bling

The JustRite Stampers Double Vision challenge asks us to use at least 2 different Spellbinders shapes AND stamps from at least 2 different JustRite sets on one project. I came up with this thank you card. I used three Spellbinders dies and a JustRite border for the medallion plus a JR font for the sentiment. There is a column of small rhinestones to the right of the ribbon.I also incorporated some challenges from sites I found last week during the Practical Scrappers blog hop. There's one called Pile It On that challenges you to put several challenges together on one project. I think the record is 31 challenges represented at once! This card doesn't actually fulfill this week's Pile It On challenge, but some of the other ones I found by following, following, following links!

Practical Scrappers: floss, fibers and ribbons
Stamp Something: layers
Stamping Vacation: pick 3 (black, white & one other color, dry embossing, make it glitter)
The ABC Challenge: Sparkle
Creative Belli Blog: die cuts
The card design is based on Laura's Sketch 50 at 2Sketches4You shown below.

Here's a close up of the card detail. It's hard to see the dimension in this picture, but the black die cut on the top layer is raised on pop dots.

Cardstock: The Paper Company, K & Company
Stamps: JustRite border from 2 inch deluxe monogram kit, Times New Roman 15 point font
Ink: Stazon black
Dies: Spellbinders labels one, Fleur de Lis pendant middle, fancy tags
Accessories: pop dots, rhinestones, ribbon
