Celebrate in (S)TILE

Good morning. Just a very quick post from me this morning as today I will be taking Katy and my scrummylicious Grand-Daughter Lola Arizona back home to Southsea after their week long visit - where did that week disappear so quickly too??
I took inspiration for  the card I would like to shre with you from my Funky DT buddy Kathy and the fabulous sketch this month on her Sketch File blog
As soon as I saw the sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to do so set off the search for the perfect image to carry it off and here's what I came up with

I started by stamping the PB 4155L 'Flower Amongst Flowers' image onto a 12cm x 12cm piece of cardstock and  embossed with clear EP and then cut this into 9 4cm squares and then matt & layered these onto black cardstock.
I then placed them onto the A5 basecard - added some co-ordinating ribbon from stash.
I stamped a tiny tag image and then stamped the Celebrate sentiment - cut it out and attached to the ribbon with a pearl centred brad.

Other challenges I would like to enter are:

Just Add Ink - Black & White

Thanks for popping by.
Have a wonderful day.
