Inspired by Shari Carroll

I'm so inspired by so many pretty cards posted over the last few weeks. One challenge caught my attention - CAS-ual Fridays' Black challenge. I've never tried making a black card before! I based my card on another Hero Arts idol - Shari Carroll. She posted a card a few months ago and I pinned it on my Pinterest Board. Her card is the inspiration for mine.

The ever so inspiring Shari is on the top right of the bottom photo.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:
A Blog Named Hero Challenge 8 - Choose a Hero Artist
Hero Arts July Challenge - Paper flowers
CAS-ual Fridays - Back in Black 
Cardstock - Black Bazzill
Paper - Basic Grey Paper Cottage
Stamp - Hero Arts Four Flowers CG290, Hero Arts Lattice Background 331065
Ink - Ranger Archival Jet Black, Versamark 
Others - Kaisercraft Blossom, Hero Arts Hues Dots, Cappuccino twine from The Twinery
