Whiff of Joy challenge

I have finally managed to get onto the internet so I can post a card!! I haven't had internet or phone since yesterday afternoon because there was something wrong at the sub exchange. My phone was still working but all you could hear was a clicking noise and couldn't hear the person on the other end speaking, but my internet was totally down.
So I have been trying to sneak on other peoples computers for a few mins to check emails etc lol.
I never thought I would miss the internet so much but I didn't know what to do without it! I am so sad lol.
Anyway on to my card. I remembered that the challenge over at WOJ was black and white and 1 other colour so I made my card for that but then just went there just now and read the challenge which is actually black and w
hite and a splash of another accent colour. Think my card still counts though??

I have never used this colour combo before and don't normaly go for bold c0lours but I really like how this turned out.
I didn't have any black and white papers so had to go looking through all my digi papers and this is the first ones I found after looking through loads and I was getting so fed up looking that I didn't even bother to look and see if there were any others that I liked better .
I'm not sure where they are from, I really must take a note when I download stuff!
The red is plain card put through my cuttlebug and the black was some embossed paper that was in my surprise bargain box from Artymiss. Flowers are all Prima and spacers are a selection from ebay, Holburn Crafts and the bead shop (both in Aberdeen).
The image is another one I got from Lorraine and I coloured her with Copics, love the way it has turned out :)

I am hoping to be back with some more cards later today but that's it from me for now. Thanks for stopping by. Please do let me know what you think of this one. I think it's one of my faves because I love this image but would love to know what you all think :)
Hugs
Lora xx
