Thank You Very Much!

There's a song from the past lol! was it by Tommy Steel? not that I'm that old but as a child I used to love watching old musicals.  I'll check and fill you in at the end of my post.
Anyway,enough of me going off at tangents and back to my  post..
My DT card for Scrapbook Sisters where this week's theme is "Thank you very much"

I have absolutely no idea where this card came from but I just love it! I was looking through a box of off cuts and found a narrow strip of card and a  scalloped circle and the rest is history. I'm sure you can see how I made the bloom of my sunflower but if not you can get the idea from this post where there's a tutorial for a card using the same technique.

I thought a fluttering butterfly would suit the card so using a quickutz die and a piece of acetate which I slipped between the snipped petals,one was added .

There was also a scalloped strip amongst my offcuts,one from the first time I used my Cricut and Plantins Schoolbook. The papers by Echo Park are part of the "Spring Time Collection.
This card has got a recipient,it's to give a work colleague who's hosting a garden party for all of the team before we break for the summer. She has a little competition going on with the reception teacher over who can grow the tallest sunflower so I thought it would give her a giggle.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Jac-inks 12, Die cuts and Embossing,
SOS8,Old stash (the tag from WHS bought in a pack of 100 years ago)
Forever friends,Not Square,
Make It Monday 45,Anything goes,
OLLCB 84,Tag it,
OMC 8,Polka dots,
Scrappy Frogs,Summer flowers,
Phindy's 63,Buttons,
Flutterby Wednesday 162,Inspiration photo,
Allsorts 111,Free and easy.
Well,I've just googled "Thank you very much"! How wrong was I!!! It's a song from Scrooge,but in my defence, a few years back we watched the musical "Scrooge" in London and the star of the show was the one and only Tommy Steel.
Thanks for stopping by,
