Happy dancing Tilda,

Hi all, I'm still here!! Just trying to get back into my old routine as our schools are now back and so is nursery for Alex. Its amazing how 8 weeks holiday knocks you off balance and makes it difficult to get back into routines. I finally got round to making a card last night, which I made with the paper sundaes challenge in mind. Their challenge was to use at least 2 of the following toppings, Green, buttons, banners and/or twine. Well do I need any excuse to get out my banner die? No i think not lol!!
I used all the toppings as there is a tiny bit of green on the bunting and button. 
The card looks very bright in the pics, its not so bright IRL, I find bright pinks very hard to photograph! 

The card base started life as a square scalloped craftwork cards basic card. I knew I wanted to make this shape and have the bunting hanging across the top. So after much measuring, cutting, folding atc I managed to get it right and I, very happy they way it turned out. You can probably buy these card shapes somewhere but i like a challenge and anything that saves money is good in my book.

Card recipe;
Image - Dancing Party Tilda.
Papers -  MME Lost and found two Blush (gorge!!)
Flowers - WOC
