Black and Teal Fleur de Lis Script Anniversary

This card was inspired by a card I saw made by the lovely LizzieS. I told her I'd be borrowing the idea!!!

I started by colouring a panel of white card with Adirondack Stream dye ink using a shaving brush and overstamped using the same ink with the Prima Notary stamp, using second-generation ink.

The Fleur de Lis mini stamp from Inkadinkado was stamped over the top using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink, as was the Stamps Away Happy Anniversary stamp.

The image panel was then matted onto black card.

A strip of teal floral circle paper, from the Papermania Temptations Big One paper pad, was matted onto the black card and across the card blank and the image panel matted over the top.

Three large teal pearls (from the Create and Craft carousel) were added in the top right corner.

I also decorated the inside of the card using the Warm Wishes stamp from the Hot Off The Press Sentiments stamp set and the Onyx Black ink.

Here are the challenges I am entering this card into:
