Roses, Stripes and Banners

This week's LIM recipe challenge is quite open to interpretation as the theme is to use 3 past challenges. Whilst blog hopping recently I came across a sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches which appealed to me so I will enter my card in two challenges for the very first time. A friend has a birthday soon so this one is for her.
The recipe I used for my Less is More challenge is:
Week 1 : Pink, Black and White
Week 54 : One layer - Stripes
Week 69 : Not a Square

The black and white paper used for the stripes comes from DCWV Black and White Paper Stack, the rose is made from Hunkydory paper and is mounted on a die cut scalloped circle. The banner is cut from Craftwork Cards paper.

Thanks for the sketch from Tui at Freshly Made Sketches.
