Celebrate Card

Well it's been raining almost non-stop here in the North of England for two days straight!  But anyway, today I created this card, which I think will do nicely for a wedding in Scotland I will be attending next month:




I created this card using a label from papermania, the buttons and the flower are also from papermania - from one of their capsule collections.
I stamped the sentiment from waltzing mouse stamps using Versafine in onyx black and cut it out in a banner shape.  Then tied a bow and added the flower to the centre, then added the three buttons.

I would like to enter my card in two challenges:

1) The waltzing mouse sketch challenge blog, the sketch this week looks like this:

WMSC102

2) Less Is More challenge blog - this week Mandi and Chrissie have chosen the theme: Something Shiny - there isn't too much shininess on this card but I think the flower might just put this card in that category!!

Anyway thanks for visiting, feel free to leave a comment so I know you dropped by!
