SOS Challenge #19 - One Colour Plus Black & White

I absolutely love my card this week even though I nearly messed up the challenge theme over at Shopping our Stash (SOS).  The theme is "One Colour plus Black & White" however I had written down in my calendar "white & one other colour" and totally missed the BLACK!!  Oooops :)  Didn't realize it until I went to post my card on the DT blog so after two minor additions, here's my card:
Can you tell my little black pearls were added afterwards??  Oh well I had the best of intentions and still made it work so I'm quite happy with it.  This card was super easy to make & one that I'll definitely replicate!  I used leftover plain white cardstock and embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder.  Next I added Tim Holtz Distress ink in Spun Sugar directly from the pad to the paper for the background and mounted it on pink cardstock.  I added a Prima flower that has been sitting in my stash for well over a year and stamped the work Thanks using a sentiment from an Amy R sentiment set I have.  The pink ribbon is also some leftover ribbon that I couldn't bear to part with and fit perfectly with this card.

Super easy right?  So now you will have to play along in our SOS Challenge #19 - One color plus black and white (skin tones and hair  colors okay)!!  PS  - Don't forget the black like I originally did :)
