Golden "love"

I found a few online challenges that I simply needed to play along with.
 The color combination came from the photo inspiration with Time Out Challenge.  I wanted black and white stripes so I created my own with a black watercolor pen and a Copic black pen.  Once I drew my lines with a ruler, I used a waterbrush to make the watercolor black ink run.  In the photo this ended up looking like it has a lavender cast but it is actually more black and white in real life making it go along with the photo.  The layout of the card went along with the Freshly Made sketch.
 I made sure my card was really on the simple side by adding black and gold glitter.  
 Here is the Time Out Challenge Photo
 Here is the Freshly Made sketch I used. 

This also fits the CASology challenge.
 This CAS on Friday challenge is to use markers or pens. 
And the Simon Says Wednesday challenge is Anything Goes.
