Hi all, it seems an age that I have been waiting for this day to come, today there is a new challenge at Ooh La La and this is my debut DT for
I am both excited and a little nervous

This next fortnights theme is
Here is my DT card
I used an image and papers from a bonus section, as I adore vintage so much I chose this particular image and matching papers.  I have used quite a few embellishments on this card, including die cuts, bow, pearls and flowers.
The first two pictures show the card front at different angles.

My next two pictures show the card as the easel card fold. 

The final picture shows the base of the card with the lace and the heat embossed sentiment. 
I picked out the colour of the brides pink flower bouquet for my embellishments and flowers.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Ooh La La have just launched a new CD called
Shoes In Bloom Part 2 and the winner will receive this as their prize

I have to apologise for my lack of blogging these last few days, not only as my son been afflicted with Man flu but my Mum has not been well either so I have been rather tied up.  I am pleased to report that both patients seem a little better today and managed to eat the roast dinner that I cooked for them.  
I do tend to worry about my mum more as she is 92 and is a bit fragile.

I am hoping to get around to see you all a bit later so please bear with me.
I hope that you like my debut card and it would be truly wonderful if you would come join our challenge.
Hugs to all.
