Inspired By Nature

I didn't get a chance to stamp over the weekend as it was my son's 10th birthday and he had a sleepover for his birthday.  Oh joy!  Actually, the boys were very well behaved but they still need adult supervision so the stamping had to take a back seat.  Luckily, I have a week's annual leave from work, so I get some stamping time anyway.

Here is my card for this week's Freshly Made Sketch challenge.

I pulled out Inspired by Nature and after stamping it in white on black, I colored it using Stampin' Pastels.  Without checking, I think this is the Black Magic technique?  I also used some new dies I got the other week - love the intricacy of these dies.  The main image is popped up on Dimensionals.  (Excuse all the little white flecks on the photo - they aren't on the card, so I think my lens may need a clean.)

Here's the sketch:
