Black, white and pink Anniversary card.

I love it when you read a challenge and just know what you are going to do for it! When I read that Colour Create was black, white and pink this week I immediately thought of this Pink Petticoat download that I have had for ages and this Lily and Billy Sweethearts stamp from Pink Cat Studio. I coloured the image with Whispers Brushmarkers, directly colouring some parts but mostly watercolouring with them. I matted them onto silver miri for extra glamour but also because the bag given for inspiration had a silver clasp. The optional challenge was to use polka dots so this Anita's ribbon was perfect, matted onto Core'dinations cut with scalloped scissors. I was also inspired to decorate the inside by the scraps I had left after finishing the card.

I am also entering this card for Dutch Dare 'Create a card using your favourite things'. I love this Lily and Billy stamp set- I think they are so cute and I love colouring them. The sentiment is from my trusty clear greetings set from Elzybells- this set can be used to make so many greetings and I love the size and style of the font. Finally it is a great favourite of mine to arrange the sentiment on a little tab.
