A black and white experiment

OK, so I have never made a black and white card before (I won't count the sympathy card I tried to CASE last year... don't ask it was a DISASTER!). This was actually hard for me to make. I can't tell if this was an experiment gone horribly wrong, or if this turned out good....
I was inspired by some cute black and white flower and butterfly epoxy stickers I found at Michael's in their dollar section. They are soooooo cute, I had to attach a pic for you, see what I mean?

I decided to use my current favorite set from Flourishes, Coffee with Friends. I used the blank cup image and put the sticker in the middle. It was looking a bit TOO black and white so I lightly colored the cups with a pink prismacolor pencil. The pink bling was planned from the start and I rather like how the ticket corner punch allows for plenty of room on the scalloped rectangle. I used my small rectangle Nesties for this. I added the 3 pink ribbon tags at the very end to break up the really large black and white DP panel. The sentiment is from Flourishes, Many Sentiments.

Card Deets:
Stamps - Coffee with Friends, Many Sentiments
Paper - white, making memories black and white DP
Accessories - epoxy stickers, pink bling from Js, pink grosgrain, nesties, dimensionals
