Swirls and Flourishes

Flourishes is releasing new stamp sets for Spring!
One of their challenges was a to create a card that is
Black and White with a pop of color!

Flourishes Primrose stamp -  A Year of Flowers was perfect for this color scheme.
The stamp has the image shaded on it, when stamped with ink gives a dark effect.
I choose Memento Tuxedo Black for a rich and dark shade of black.

The swirl paper was perfect for Flourishes!

My pop of color was a soft shades of pink! One of my favorite colors for Primroses.
What color do you like to add to Black and White?
