Huge fan of black and white with a pop of red - and this card is just elegant with the way you used the colors. I hope your physical therapy is helping you, Chris!

Love your take on the challenge Chris! What would we do without the Fancy Foliage die? I use that one so much!!! I also like how you stamped the sentiment and then embossed!!! This is another beauty!!!!
