Less Is More In Colour

This is my interpretation of the Less is More sketch and the colour challenge from Der/Die/Das Bawion - black and pink. The pink is quite subtle and I tried to keep the embellishments to a minimum. The trim is layered with black card punched with a Martha Stewart punch and a gingham pink ribbon.

For the embellishment I used two paper flowers and a button covered with printed fabric. The image on the button is from the Graphics Fairy. The last touch was the sentiment stamped with a Penny Black stamp. Petra.
