Pink and Black Elegance

This week's challenge over at Craft Your Passion, is to use the colors pink and black together. I was thrilled to see this as a challenge theme, because this is one of my favorite color combos! Please join us over at Craft Your Passion and play along in our pink and black color challenge! You could win some cute cute cute digi images from Coco Dingo and Lauretta's Digital Stamps!

I love it when I can push myself to incorporate multiple sketches! For this card, I used the sketches at Truly Scrumptious, at Card Patterns (Sketch #79) and at Just Inspirationl Sketches, I rotated the one at Just Inspirational Sketches a little, to make it fit on my card, and i got really creative with the one at Crad patterns! The image is from CocoDingo and is colored with Promarkers. All DP is old papers from my Stash. (I just love the grey and black patterned paper with the glitter!) The flowers have pink gem centers to add some more Bling. I found these new pearls on clearance, recently, and just had to add those, as well. A girl can never have too much bling!
