1 Card, 2 Challenges

Back Again, this time with a card to fit 2 challenges I dont combine them often so hope its ok, firstly for the Penny Black Challenge which is to use "pink and brown" on your creations, and secondly for the One Stop Craft Challenge where the theme is "take a punch".
So when I started out I didnt think my pink would end up being so shocking!, and I never really put this shade of pink with brown at least I dont think I do!, I usually go for the baby pink and chocolate look, all snug and cosy but this certainly isnt!!! (sorry bout pic)

See what I mean lol, but I think it kinda suits the image. I think I overloaded on flowers too!. I coloured the image with promarkers, and then I went around it with a blue pen I have seen so many people across blogland doing it and it really does make a difference to the image, more so when you get it dead neat and tidy so I glad the pic no show my freehand mess up to much! I was going to scrap it but thought nope how else am I gonna learn lol. The happy birthday is cut from a hero arts dies. The punches element is the corners which I used a fiskars punch and in the mix of flowers I used some punched ones.
Thanks for stopping by and Looking.x

Lovely card, Joey. I like the use of pink (even hot pink) and brown. And you can't ever have too many flowers.
