Time to celebrate

I pinned this sketch over at Sketchbook Saturday to my taskbar as soon as I saw it ! I knew I just had to create something with it - I love the balance that Iwona's sketches have they always make a great base for your papers and creativity.

I used one of my Anna Griffin clear lace stamps for the background (kraft) panel and embossed it with some white embossing powder. The striped DP is from SU and the spot is from EP Victoria gardens.
I also embossed the "celebrate" sentiment (HOTP).

Dies used are Spellbinders picot edge circle & circle dies. And also Crealies creative butterflies die.

Sorry about the terrible picture I tried to shine a bit of light onto the card without changing the colours too much - I am sooooo fed up with the rain and am very much looking forward to a bit if sunshine - must be some coming soon surely !

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Sketchbook Saturday - Beautiful sketch x (S)
The shabby tea room - Photo inspiration with ribbon & flowers (M)
The crazy challenge - Girly (M)
Paper pretties Monday challenge - Pink & green (M)
Craft room challenge - Ink it (T)
Creative card crew - Ribbon (T)
Flourishes timeless Tuesday - Bingo (I used pink, ribbon & die cut) (T)

Thanks so much for visiting me today - I had better brave the weather and get the kids from school !
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
