Happy Anniversary in black, white and yellow

This card is for the sketch this week on Dottie's world:

As usual, we are required to use a Charmed image and I've chosen the 'Happy Anniversary' one from the Love and Marriage collection, changing it to black and white.

The black and white combines with the yellow for colour chef 34 on Kelly Jo this week: 'black, yellow, white' and for Flourishes Timeless 48 colour challenge: 'black and yellow + another colour of your choice' (the added white and tiny dots of red). I hope there's enough yellow for the My grafico challenge 31: 'yellow'. It's also another one for Lucy's cards 3: 'monochromatic' - one colour along with black and/or white, also Crafty creations 49: 'black and white with a splash of colour'.

The current challenge for Creative inspirations 42 is 'Anniversary card', so this is good for that. And it also fits No time to stamp? 121: 'love is in the air', Saturday spotlight 13: 'love without hearts' and Ann's creative nook 73: 'love is in the air',

The torn script paper is just right for Corrosive 46, Creative inspirations 24 and Creative card crew 42, which all have the current theme of 'distressing'.

Say Happy Birthday with flowers

This card is for Mercy's sketch challenge 55:

and also for ColourQ challenge 14:
Everything I've used, except the ribbon, raffia and sentiment, is from the Laura Ashley contemporary range - the papers, the stamp (which I inked with Brilliance pearlescent crimson and heat embossed with clear detail) and the fabric covered brad.

It's also good for:

Today (day 317) on 365: 'crazy eight' - use 8 colours: lilac, purple, yellow, green, pink, fuschia, brown, crimson, blue ... at least 8 here
2 red bananas: 'think round' - create something with curves - plenty on the flowers
Cute daisy may: 'ribbon and flowers'
Design dollies colour challenge: 'fuschia and pale yellow'
Fiskarettes: 'layering' - a few layers here
Pink elephant 49: 'birthday'
There she goes 37: 'embellish x 3 - ribbon, raffia and brad
Another one for Stampin' royalty 1: 'birthday theme'
Another one for Your next stamp 7: 'embossing' - the heat embossing on the central flower
Another for Hand full of stamps 11: 'say it with flowers'
Another for Frosted designs: 'ink challenge' - this time heat embossing a pigment ink
Another too for Crazy 4 challenges 19: 'birthday'
Sweet stampin' 8: 'colour combo' - certainly celery, rose red, pretty in pink, almost amethyst
Sunflowers and dragonflies 23: 'faux stitching' - on the green ribbon
Crafty catz 14: 'bright and sparkly' - the purple edging of the sentiment is glittered, as well as the pearlescent sheen of the embossed ink
