Coloring on a black card stock - something new for me

Hello all, happy Friday, I am glad weekend is here. Everyone seems to be having a problem waking up in the morning nowadays. So weekend is greeted very well at my home nowadays.
I am sharing a card which I finished making now, I started it in the morning, but after coloring didn't had any ideas how to proceed further.
I used a shimmery black card stock and stamped the lacy scrolls from AltNew in white pigment ink, and colored it using color pencils. I used a black sharpie and ran over the lines. I left this as it is(I didn't plan this card beforehand) for few hours, and watched a movie and had my lunch and got back to finish it ;)
I decided to added it to a white base, and I used the sentiment from Uniko Sentiment and heat embossed in black ink, using clear embossing powder.
I felt that it need something to frame it, after trashing the idea of gold embossing, and adding a glittered frame, I decided to simply draw a frame using a black sharpie. I am glad I trashed the earlier 2 ideas, I like this look. I finished off as usual with matching rhine stones. I hope you all like it, I am very happy with it. Oops, forgot to mention that I added some yellow glitter glue to the flower center.

I am using Cornelia's card again as my inspiration. I have one more card using acrylic paints on black, but for today it is with pencils.
