SBC Challenge #2 "Make it a Classic"

Today's challenge at Simply Betty Challenges is to create a Valentine's Day card
using black and white and silver (optional), with either
pink or red as an accent color.
You can't use both, but rather one or the other.
We can all thank the creative genius who is Eulanda for this little challenge.
Thank you Eulanda!

I decided to work with "Sally" from

I really like the whole black and white color scheme with a touch of pink for
a nice pop of color. It was a bit hard to limit my use of the pink accent color.
I couldn't resist using pink for her eyes, but was worried she'd look like an albino rat
when I was all done. I think it looks pretty cool.

I just had to use a Glow Skull for the fleur center since I made
this one with a heart for an eye special just for Valentine's Day.

Please join us this week for our "Classic" challenge, and if you are the lucky
winner you will win a gorgeous "Be Mine" paper pack from Echo Park.
