Pink, Black and White Birthday Card

Good afternoon, another lovely morning but starting to cloud over now.  I realised yesterday that there are 3 birthdays at work soon and with the Bank Holidays and time I've got off  it means I've got to get them done by Wednesday eek!!  Here is the first one:

I have used this gorgeous Lili of the Valley stamp 'It's My Party' coloured with Promarkers and added a bit of glamour dust.  I have used papers from My Minds Eye and matted onto black card.  The sentiment I have made myself on the computer.  The swirl was cut from glitter card with a Marianne die.  The flower was made by punching 2 daisies from glitter card and then I used some cosmic shimmer on a paper rose which promptly fell to pieces, so I just used 2 layers from the rose and added the pink pearl gem in the middle.  The organza across the middle of the card was in a pack from Home Bargains.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Colour Create Challenge - Pink, Black and White
Passion for Promarkers - Make your own embellishments

Right I am going to get ready to go to Mum and Dad's this afternoon.  Think of me please we are going to watch the match on the telly and mum, dad and Emily are true blues and Chris and Stewart are die hard reds.  I am piggy in the middle and just hope it is a good match!!  Secretly I'd love City to win, think United win too much and Chris is getting too cocky lol!!

well I think your rose benefitted from deconstruction - works brilliantly with the punched elements & I love that swirl. Judging by Sunday's post (I'm commenting backwards) you survived the match which I was totally oblivious too but now will know what people are talking about!!
