Charisma.... Black 'n White + one other colour

A close up to show the Bling on the swirls

Good morning peeps!! as always this post is scheduled as I'm at work today, so I hope the sun is shining wherever you are and that you are having a fab day.

This week the Challenge at Charisma is being set by the lovely Allison and she would like to see your creations using 
It would be lovely if you have the time to pop over and view the  Design Teams fabulous cards for your inspiration this week, and also have peek at the wonderful prizes on offer while you're there.
Now on to my DT card for this challenge. 
I have used a free download with swirls and flowers which is originally Black and White, I coloured a few flowers with Copics , unfortunately I have had this and others on my computer for years but have no idea where I got them from. If you recognise it and know where it came from I'd be grateful if you could tell me so that I can give credit for it on here. I think it may be a Scrapbook site as they are all 12 x 12.
The corner is a die cut from Marianne Creatables and the Hearts are a Woodware punch. 
The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
The swirls have been blinged with stickles but the pic doesn't show it very well at all.
This was a really simple card to put together and I was really pleased with the effect it's really quite sparkly in real life. Camera's  huh!!! 
Thanks for popping in today
