Birthday Card in Pink and Black

I made this card for my Boyfriend's Mum, I used papers from DCWV Black & White stack and printable papers from Stitchy Bear's Love Bloom's II selection. To create the flowers I used a set of Joy Crafts flower dies, I cut them all from white card then used chalks, inks and glamour dust to decorate them, I then adhered them using varying thicknesses of foam pads to create a nice layered arrangement although you can't really tell in the photo's :o)

To create the "Birthday Wishes" sentiment I used 2 cute stamps from Stamping All Day, I stamped using Versamark then embossed using a detail silver powder. I also created a tiny "Mum" tag in the same way. I added ribbon, a charm and pearls to finish off. I always like how pink and black turn out but don't seem to use the combo that much.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - "Anything Goes"
Fab n Funky - "Bingo" - my 3 in a row are Embellishment, Ribbon, Die Cuts
Creative Inspirations - "Anything Goes"
Emerald Faeries - "Pearls"
