Quirky Crafts Challenge - Guest Designer

Good evening all.I am back again, this time with a card for the new challenge over at the Quirky Crafts Challenge.Thanks ladies for having me as your guest designer for this challenge.
I am bad though and didn`t get the theme quite right, sorry ladies but i did have a blast making this card , i loved the image i recieved from one of the sponsors too.
Here are the details for the challenge:

Challenge #9 2013 Dark and Bright and Don't be Square - use a very dark colour with very bright colour (not black and white) and no squares or rectangles.
We want to see one very dark colour and one very bright colour as the main colour scheme of your project - this means you can only use two colours, except for white - no white allowed unless it is part of an image or sentiment!
Images can include additional colours (including white). As well as that you should not have any squares or rectangles on your project (layout pages can be normal but nothing on them should be square or rectangular). That is all then, simples!

Examples of colours you could use:
Black - bright green
Black - bright pink
Black - bright orange
Black - bright blue
Dark Green - bright green
Dark Green - bright pink
Dark Green - bright orange
Dark Green - bright blue (maybe that would clash)
Navy or dark blue with any of the above brights,
Very dark red or purple, with any of the above brights,
and so on.
Don't forget - no white allowed except for images and sentiments!
