JURY DUITY DAY :P

Greetings fellow bloggers! I am waiting to go to Jury duty this AM so I have a little time to post a card I made this weekend. My card is for 2 different Challenges. 1) OCC challenged us
 to make a card using texture & only black & white. 2)  Just Us Girls challenged us to make a card using dry embossing.
So much texture & dimensional goodness!! For my Dry embossing I used my old standby cuttlebug swiss dots. all paper & DP is PTI. I used Marvy mega flower punch (doctored up a bit) for my flower. Just free hand cut the leaves & used SU scallop punch (doctored  that a bit too) for the bottom layers. I love how fun & easy this was to make!! Here is a different view.

That's it for this one....better get ready to go!! Thanks for todays visit!!
