Moving House in Black-White-Orange

Having only little time at the moment but being in need of a quick card for a friend who had just moved into a new place, I went for nestabilities in combination with the current Play Date Cafe Challenge colour combination (PDCC25): mainly black and white with a splash of orange ....
.... an unusual and very vivid colour combination. I created a little shadow box in white with decorations in mainly black and a bit of orange .....

Supplies:
papers - white textured card, Crate Paper, Bazill Basics
stamps - Elzybells, Snag'em Stamps
ink - Brilliance ink
punch - Martha Stewart
bling - Kanban
ribbon - from my stash

The shadow box body is cut with the largest rectangular nestabilities shape. The edges on both sides of the box are punched with Martha Stewart 'Pansy'. The inside of the shadow box is decorated with orange-white paper. The box window is reflected in the inside with the fabulous new home of my friend. Some bling and fluffy ribbon complete the picture. Petra.
