Shiny Sympathy

This silver and black card is beautiful in person, though it's a little hard to see in the picture.  Only the front of the card is shaped - the back is rectangular.  

The front started with a ColorMe Card Topper from HOTP.  I got it in my paper swap and had already used the middle portion in a previous card (here).  This meant I had to find a way to cover most of it!  (This I did with a piece of black and silver foilboard from HOTP.)  I colored the inside of the topper with with black ink (giving a neat black on black effect - I'll have to try black embossing on black sometime!)  Though it looks white in the picture, the outside edge of the topper was colored with a silver metallic Sharpie.  

My sentiment was stamped (stamp from HOTP) with StazOn on a shiny metallic piece of silver paper.  This was matted on a black tag die cut (die from Spellbinder's).  I ran a black ribbon across the foilboard and then added the matted sentiment with foam tape for dimension.
