Penny Black at All Sorts - April Challenge

Happy April Fool's day everyone!!

Since it's the first of the month and friday I have a few posts scheduled for today!

First up is Penny Black at All sorts posted monthly on the first!
Our challenge this month is

Black and White and one other color.

You may of course use skin/hair tones etc. I used yellow as my "other" color.
I decided to use this cute kitty stamp from the clear set " critter party".

I have only used it once, and I thought it would be perfect to use for this color challenge.
I used papers from DCWV and stampin' up. Embellished with a flower ribbon which was a freebie from a UK magazine, prima flowers with brads, some punched out butterflies and some sticky pearls. Of course I had to add some glitter too. To finish it off I did some sewing with my janome mini. The sketch is from a friday sketcher's challenge from a few weeks ago.

I'd love to enter my card to the following challenges:
Cooking it up with Katie (sparkle shine and shimmer)
Crafts and me (use yellow)
Lawnscaping challenge (colour splash)
Charisma Cardz (bling and sparkle)
Delightful Challenges (flowers)

I hope you'll decide to join us this month, as always we have some amazing prizes up for grabs, from the Penny Black company, PB stamps and Letraset! So there are lots of chances to win! Plus you can enter up to 3 times!! All you have to do is use a Penny Black image and follow the theme.
