Black & White Mashup

For this week's Friday Mashup challenge, it was to create a square card using black & white.
I struggled with this, because for me, black and white symbolize death and sympathy.  So that's what I did.  I also combined it with a sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping.
Here's the card.
Sorry it's a bit blurry.  I tried to take several shots, but the camera does not want to focus.  Maybe it needs glasses.  Ha!

Honestly, I don't know what I think of this card.  I don't do Clean and Simple very well at all.  Yet, judging from my set of Thank You cards that I did recently, the ones that got the most views in my galleries and most well received by family was the one that was the most simple.  So I thought I should try some CAS (Clean and Simple) style.  Maybe my problem is that it's not a happy card.  That must be it.  I think I need to make a cheery black & white and CAS card.  OK, back to the drawing board.

My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Just Believe, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Black (non-SU)
Papers:  Black (non-SU)
Accessories: Beveled Window, black ribbon (non-SU)

Sympathy cards I think are never really fun to make but they can be just as gorgeous or elegant.. This is a great take on the Sketch and the challenge. I think you did a Fabulous job! Thanks for sharing it with us at The Friday Mashup!
