Black and white Birthdaycard

I have tried to colour an image in "Black and White" - as the challenge at MDUC was this week. I have tried this colouring a couple of times before, and I really like it. I find it kind of relaxing to colour "without colours" :)
To put the card together I used the sketch from Sketchy Colors (Their Challenge!), and I dusted off the sewing machine to sew around the edges.
I used papers (from Majadesign) in black/ white/ with a little touch of light pink - and added a little light pink bow and three very, very light pink (almost white) roses.
I used a black lacefabric underneath the diecutpanel (Nellies Multiframes), and tied a bow with a black lace. All pearls are made with Liquid Pearls.
I also made a few "dewdrops" on the leaves and flowers with tiny GlossyAccents-pearls.
On the banner I wrote "Gratulerer" by hand with a light grey felt-tip-pen.
Inside the card I made a giftcardpocket, and punched out panels with a Martha Stewart punch (Punch around the page).
On the left side I stamped a birthdaygreeting, and the right side I left blank for personal greetings.
All edges are distressed with DistressInk BlackSoot.
The next two pictures show the inside and a close-up of Tilda, and at the bottom of the post you'll find the challenges I'll try my luck in...
