Watering Can on Black and White

I made this for the Challenge at Isabella's Sketchbook :
Your card is to be black and white only - the "twist" is you CAN color only your image!
I used the digi Watering Can Garden  from Isabella's Sketchbook that I colored with pencils and OMS. Cut out the image with Nesties Rectangles and matted on black CS. I used a base of white CS with mat of black and then a mat of Pattern Paper that is an unknown digi paper.  I finished with a white grograin ribbon layered with a black satin ribbon. Added a button with a bow to finish...just the right touch?.
Other challenges to enter:
City Crafter Challenge: Use button and bow
Speedy the Cat's Friends Saturday Challenge: Use buttons and bows on your card.
Always like the cripness of black and white in a card.
Thanks for stopping by.
Theresa
