One layer card

Over at No Time to Stamp the challenge is to make a card using only the card itself... no additional papers. Embellishments may be added, but that's all.
I began by de-bossing the front of the card with a Nestie rectangle and then I stamped the image from a Prima Marketing clear stamp into the space.
The ribbon treatment is two ribbons, both of which began life white, but I coloured the narrower stripy one with a Copic marker to make it black.
I started to heat emboss thePapermania 'make your own brad' with black embossing powder, but it looked dreadful, so I reheated it and wiped the black off. In fact it left a slightly aged look which I prefer to either the plain silver or the black embossing.
This is another candidate for Really Reasonable Ribbons' Black and White challenge too!
