 Hi all, what a dreadful day it is where I am, horrible,drizzly,dark and miserable! I'm hoping that wherever you are, you have blue skies and sunshine!
Send some my way :)

I'm rather pleased with my offering today, a little bit of a summery feel to it.

 I've not done any bunting for a few posts and as I've recently been awarded the title of
 "Queen Of Bunting"
 by the lovely Kerry, it gave me the kick up the pants that I needed!
I must confess that I just love the look of the hand cut bunting, the last time I added it to a card I used a stamp and I just wasn't so pleased with the look.

I think that hand cut is much easier on the eye. My favourite bit of the card though has to be my patchwork flower,made using some of my favourite paper remnants, I just love it, look out for more of these, they could take over from the bunting lol!  Check out the nailhead peeping out from behind my flower.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Penny's 98, Girls,
PSC53A, Birthday,
Anything Goes 78, Make your own embellishments,
Emerald fairies 34, Anything goes,
Bearly Mine 57, Anything goes,
