Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge

This week we thought it would be fun to create a black and white card.  Please go over to Joan's Gardens to read all the challenge rules and see what the prize is for this week.  Joan has a new way of selecting the winner of the challenge, I think you will love. 

My card was created with one of the new Nellie Snellen embossing folders called "Round Frame 1".  On the left side of the card I added the new Memory Box "Trellis Border".  The flowers were created using the MFT "Royal Rolled Rose" and Spellbinders "Spiral Blossom One" dies.  The leaves are from the new Memory Box "Fresh Foliage" die.  The sentiment was stamped in the embossed frame with a stamp from the JustRite "Seeds of Summer" stamp set. Along the bottom I added a piece of "Sticky Back Lace",  which comes in a roll.   The black silk bow and black pearls were added to complete the card.

Hi there
You have an amazing blog and wanted you to know I think your cards and
designs are spectacular.
Won't you please let me know which glue you use and especially which
glue for the thinner pieces like the flourishes.
