Pink and chocolate birthday

This is for City crafter 14 sketch challenge:
and also for Colour create 49: 'warm pink, chocolate and white', with this inspiration picture:

I used an A6 card that already had three squares cut out. I stuck the diagonally striped paper, cut the squares out with a craft knife and then stuck the double sided paper so that the stripes were inside and the plain brown showing through the squares. Lastly, I stuck the pearl pink panel over and added the flowers with the brad centres and the sentiment panel.

This is the inside:

Fantasy tree

This is for the sketch for Freshly brewed 12:

I've used Bo Bunny Delilah here's 2U and Delilah stripe, tearing the latter and edging with copic crimson. The stamped image is Penny Black's fantasy (I've usually used this as a winter tree with snow, but thought it would be OK for a blossom one), dotting here and there with Sakura glaze pens.

I'm a bit disappointed that, once I'd put the striped paper and image on, there's no sign of the pink trees on the Bo Bunny paper - wish I'd worked it so that there was a pink one showing - nevvermind.

I chose the colour combo to go with the challenge 41 on Cards & things: 'regal rose, chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, pretty in pink.
