What's black and white and yellow all over?

My project for Kay's challenge at Stampotique Designers Challenges this week! 

Here's what Kay had to say about her challenge!
"It is my turn to host the Stampotique Designers' Challenge this week! What might seem like a simple challenge to most, for some, whose work is generally full of color, it really will be a challenge. But, for all of us, it's good to try something different. I have been on a black'n'white artistic kick lately because I love the crisp freshness it can bring to a card, journal page or ATC. Whatever you decide to do, keep it black and white with just a pop of color! Get creative this week and join us!"
If you'd like the chance to win $30 worth of Stampotique stamps, you should play along. Visit Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and be sure to read the rules, so that you'll have the chance to win a great prize!!!

Here's my card featuring Stampotique's Birdy Up (Kira Nichols)!

 Birdy Up was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Cool Greys and Yellow Copic markers. The cloudy sky and grass were drawn in using the same greys.

Black and White patterned papers by MME and Basic Grey were layered, though some of them were colored with a Y17 marker. The border die-cut is by Die-namics. I haven't added a sentiment as I don't know who will receive this card for what occasion. The sentiment will likely land on a die-cut in the plaid portion of the card.

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall enter this card in the following challenges:
