Card made for a Black and White Swap

This is a card I made for a swap that I am in. I love black and white cards and am happy with the way this card turned out. I used an old Stampin Up stamp. I stamped the image with black pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used a new Spellbinders die for the oval. For the background I used a paper that had a metallic sheen on one side, the other side was black. After running it through the sizzix machine I rubbed jet black Stazon over the embossed background. I love the way the black looks against the metallic paper. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the edges. I punched 2 holes on top and bottom of oval, threaded some ribbon through, taped it to the background and tied a bow at the top. Thanks for having a look!
