B&W Birthday Wishes

Good morning all!  Not much going on with me this week. I have totally not  been in the crafting mood since getting back from vacation. Luckily I had this completed prior to going! This weeks challenge at Magnolia-licious was picked by wonderful Norma. It's a color challenge and she wants us to use Black, white and 1 other color. I chose pink. You don't have to do a B&W image, but I have always wanted to do it and it was a challenge for me but I love it!

I made the flowers.....ok, so they are nothing special, but they are made by me and that is special! Haha. Seeing other peoples flowers I am actually kind of embarrassed showing these off!!!!

I popped out the flowers in the pot she is holding. Don't know what I was thinking when I decided to do this...that was some tough cutting!!

I colored  Tilda with Flower Pot using Copics. I believe they were all C's.  You can pick this Tilda up in the Magnolia-licous store HERE. She is too cute!  The papers are all from Close to my Heart. Not many other details to share!

So hop on over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and check out all the fabulous designs by the other DT members and be sure to join us in the challenge because Ms Diana always gives away an awesome $25.00 gift certificate to her store!!

Hi Tracy,
Your card is AWESOME!!!
I would never have known you hadn't made a black and white card before - perfect colouring!
Beautiful design papers, great flowers - love how you popped out the ones in the flower pot :o) - love all the pearls - even in her hair bows :o)

This is one gorgeous card Tracy. Your coloring is awesome. I have never tried to color in black and white. I love how you have the flowers popping out like that for 3D effect. Your handmade flower is beautiful. Lovely background paper too.
