Pink and black keys card

Good afternoon fellow crafters/bloggers/friends . I hope all is well 
in your world today . I have a pink , black and white card to
 show you today. I love that colour combo, I hope you like it too.
Quick tip below!!!
I wanted some bakers twine for this card and don't have any so....
here is quick tip for anyone who doesn't know. I cut a length of white
twine, then I wrapped it around a ruler ( cover it with tape first maybe). 
I used a pink Promarker I  had used on the card image and drew stripes
 along the string horizontally. I dried that with my heat gun then I was
 able to add it to my card....job done !
ps. Thankyou to all who asked, our family party went  very well on  Sunday .
A great time had by all :) I am trying  to rest a bit more lol.Poor
 Alex and Charlie both have colds though now....poor babies !
