White Mats with Black Rose Artichokes &Birthday Candy !

Wow, what a title.Several Challenges rolled into one.
I've been busy trying to catch up on some challenges I had saved to do.
I started out with each challenge but before long I had ended up
combining my challenges into one card.
I wanted to try the color challenge CC209 on SCS.
I loved this color combo, but didn't have the exact colors,so went with
what I had that was closest.I then went with this sketch SC218 from SCS,
I had saved from a couple weeks ago.After I had my card made, I realized
it also qualified for the challenge Sharon had posted.
It is also the Limited Supply Challenge on OCC.
I seldom make cards that are simple and without pattern paper,but I so love Sharon's cards and wanted to try this.I love the look of showing more white.

Paper; Bazzill CS
Ink; SU
Accessories; Offray ribbon, tombows, stickles, Labels nesties.

This card I made using the challenge from Flourishes.
I also went with more white showing.The Cs I used, really does match
my ribbon and stamp flower IRL.Not sure why its looks more blue.
Stamps; Flourishes, Inkadinkado butterfly
Paper; Bazzill Cs,MM paper.
Accessories; Ovals nesties,Stickles,$store rhinestones, MA ribbon, CB embossing.

Now for the Blog candy.As I mention in my earlier post,
I will be celebrating my Birthday on Thursday and I wanted you all to
celebrate with me, so I am giving away some candy.
So what do you have to do to win this?
