Coloured black

Hi everyone,
This afternoon I suddenly had an irresistible urge to use black in a card. I didn't know where I could use it. And then I thought I'd create one more card for Kazan's sketch #9. I don't even know if we can submit more than one card, but I will do it anyway.

Now, here's my card recipe. All I had in front of me was some white textured cardstock, a sheet of black paper (not as thick as cardstock), my miniature punches and punching papers. I had been wanting to create a 'shaker' card too for a while now... so I tried even that here.. filling the shaker part with punched flowers, buttons, and some sequins. I liked this card. I have not added the sentiment yet, because I am still trying to figure out whom it is for. In all probability, I will just write 'Have a bright and prosperous new year' inside the card. What do you think?

This is REALLY pretty! Black in a card is a great idea if it's used as artistically as you've used it :)
