Spotlight on a Rose with a Flourish

At Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge,  Barbara is challenging us to use the spotlight technique. I made my card with black and white plus pink for a color challenge but got the date wrong and will enter just for Flourishes and a sketch challenge at Friday Sketchers ( see sketch lower right).
I used a stamp from Flourishes that I stamped twice and only colored the section that I spotlighted with Copics. Cut out the images with circle dies and matted on black CS. Used black for the base card and layered with embossed mat of white glossy, and strips of black, pink, and white. Embossed black and white strips and highlighted dots on white with black ink. Used ribbon, bling, and stick on sentiment to complete layout. I will be sending this card to Operation Write Home which you can check out here. I have placed a white liner inside  the card so that the user has a place to write a message.
Challenges:
Timeless Tuesday: Spotlight challenge
Friday Sketchers: Sketch on right
Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge:  Make and mail a birthday card  for OWH!
Phindy's Place Challenge: Use any Image and make a card for OWH.

Stamp: Flourishes Roses from Calendar Set 2 
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics: RV 21,23,29,  G21
Papers: White Glossy CS, GKD Black CS,
             Pink Gemstones CS
Rhinestones: KaiserCraft
Sentiment: Cloud Design 9 Clear Epoxy Stickon
Cuttlebug: EF Swiss Dots, Victoria
Nesties: Circles

I probably would have done other colors for this card but stayed with the black, white and pink since I had finished when I discovered I had looked at the wrong week for the color challenge.
