All black card !

Hi all ! 
Welcome back to another post :) 
I am back yet again with another challenge on the Beyond Grey challenges blog
Now that it was my turn to throw in a challenge ... i kept wondering what to do 
I was sure i wanted a color challenge as we havent had that in a while . 
So an idea struck me why not make a Black card with only little pop of color ? 
So thats how it came to me ... 
But it was by far the most difficult to follow ..... 
So here is the newest challenge !
Oh So Knotty ! 

Now this challenge has 2 parts to it.  (Please read carefully to avoid confusion)

 You are free to make any paper crafted project , card or layout as long as
1. Your project has a KNOT  (or many knots) of some kind on it .
It can be ribbons, twins, fabric, jute or anything that can be knotted . 

2. Your project needs to be a complete black project with only Maroon or shades of maroon color on it, that means Maroon should stand out on black.
Neutrals like white, Kraft and beige are allowed but in limited amount. 
 Now that is sorted , 
Lets welcome back our premium sponsor of 2013 
with a huge round of applause !
Crafters Corner is generously donating RS 500 /- GV to the winner of this challenge !

Lets move on to my inspiration
I have used the 657748 Sizzix-textured-impressions-embossing-folder-classical-beauty-baroque-wallpaper-set for embossing the layer on top of the card.
I also sanded the edges to reduce the size of the paper so that the embossed layer is easily visible.
i then went for the chalk board effect with some white pigment ink on the embossed motifs .
Next using the doily that i cut with  659058 sizzix-thinlits-die-set-2pk-doily & doily-border#2
and inked it with black ink just slightly .
 I then stacked some ribbon i had into pleats and pushed it underneath the floral ovals die.

This flower is totally handmade using 659069 sizzix-thinlits-die-set-6pk-butterfly-flowers-lattice 
This flourish is made with Sizzix-sizzlits-die-card-phrases-set
The set has 3 pieces and has a lot to offer !
For the knot part of my challenge i decided to go with net fabric and made a double bow !

Hope u enjoyed my card and
would head over to BGC blog to participate in this challenge !
