Black & White

Over at less is more this week there is a sketch challenge and this is what I have come up with.  I cut an A4 card to make a square card and then added the embossed square with a scalloped centre to which I have added a black card.  The flowers are from £1 land with a brad from my stash.  The happy birthday sentiment was donated to me.
I am entering this into -
Less is More - Sketch 
Crafty Catz Challenge 130 - Anything Goes 
CFC50 - Flowers or Trees
