Polka Doodles Challenge - Colour Theme

Good morning everyone, hope like me that you woke up to a lovely sunny day and no wind at last as it's been very breezy over the last few days.
It's Friday so it's time for another challenge over at Polka Doodles and this time it's my turn to choose the theme. As we haven't had a colour challenge for a while I decided that I'd like to see your creations using:
Black and White + One Colour
It's entirely up to you which colour you use and you really should hop over to look at the rest of the Design Team creations as there are some really gorgeous projects to inspire you.
For my creation, I've made a simple card this time, using cool green as the colour choice.

All the elements on my card are from the Sugar Birdies Collectors Edition CD and I've been wanting to use the striking flourishes for quite a while. The embellishments were all cut out and adhered with foam tape for a 3d look. The only other addition was a white central border punched which the Martha Stewart daisy border punch.

You have until 12 noon on Sunday 20 March to enter and I can't wait to see your creations.

I'm entering my card into the One Stop Craft week 121 challenge too as it also has the theme of Black & White + One Colour.

I like 'simple'. The border (M.S.punch) is so effective and I like your choice of green as your third colour.
Very chic!!
