It's Nearly all Quirky Black and White!

Evening Peoples! It's Quirky time again and this fortnights challenge has been thought up by Doris and she would like to see a black and white creation, but with only a hint of your favourite colour! Easy! (Yay, I can do that!) 
We have three sponsors this time. Crafty Ribbons, Limited Runs, and Robyn's Fetish!  So loads of prizes! We also have two new guest designers who are staying with us for the next two months. Find out how you too can become a two month guest designer here. We've only just added this so go add your name to the list! You'll be near the top! We also have two challenge winners joining us as guest designers this week too! And they have made some fantastic designs! Go See!!
Here's my card. I couldn't resist this digital Whoosie Owl from Limited Runs .... and yes, once again, Madison had to be in there, somewhere.....waving her axe! 
The papers are from Dovecraft's 'A Hint of Pink' by Kate Knight. (which I won some years back, so it may not still be round) Anyway, it's mostly black or very dark grey and white, with a hint of pink, which went very well with a pink feather I've had on my workbench all week! I've also 3D-ed the little owl and added some Glossy-Acents to his eyes (which you can't see) and used Promarkers to colour him. There's also a bit of mock stitching, using a white gel pen.
Inside I've added a little envelope to hide some birthday money. (A BIG Thank you to Joynana who sent me a whole bunch of them ages ago!!)
The feather has been waiting ages for me to use (it must be years old!) and this just seemed to be the right time!  (I promise no pink feathered Owls were harmed in the making of this card!) I've also added 5 black brads, 3 white gems, 2 black and white spotted buttons, 1 Woodward paisley brad, some black mess, black eye-lash wool and a row of black sequins, and some grey ink to smudge it up a bit!
The font I've used is a freebie, it's called  JeffreyPrint JL, download it HERE or just Google the name. Well, that's it I think, I'm not here so I hope blogger has loaded this! I'm out all day with a Doberman called Frank! I've been walking dogs and feeding cats all week, taking over sis in lws job and driving her Animal Ambulance, which is great fun and I don't think I'm going to give it back to her tomorrow when she comes home! Thanks for stopping by! When I get back, I'd love to enter this into some... Scroll down to hunt for the hidden freebie gnome!
