sugar nellie is hot!!

well another day another challenge ,well 4 really!! don`t know how this happened but seem this card fits in with 4 challenges this week!!
this week started , with the hope that there was a challenge i could use to fit in with a birthday card for my longest known frieind s, just about to turn teenager , daughter!!( does that make sense??)
so monday was "papertake weekly " who`s theme this week is "feelin hot, hot, hot! ~ use hot colours" ~great i`ll use my sugar nellie image from fran, ideal for a teenage girl!! when i look at sunflowers i think oranges and yellows!! sorted ,then tuesday "a spoonful of sugar", their theme was "celebrations" such as birthdays,weddings etc!! looked at "my time to craft" ~hoping they had their challenge was on site and their theme was " buttons and buckles" ~had already selected some buttons for the card , just had a rummage for my one and only buckle!! ~nice bit of bling!! then on thursday after the card was finished, "cute cards" theme this week is "birthday card" ~how lucky was that!!??? so without meaning to, this card fits all 4 challenges ~gosh thats all a bit long winded!!!
for the card, as i said i used a sugar nellie image, colorbook papers and tag, sun stamp, flowers, buttons, buckle, gem , ribbon from my stash!!... and some glitter!!


thought i would show a close up of the flowers and buttons , as i so love this bee button (he`s from craftime~dress it up~button fun)~sometimes wish the pics on the blog were closer , as you miss so much detail on the cards !!! (need a zoom in function!!)
hope you all have a great saturday , it`s raining here!!~the garden so needs it!! was hoping to get lewis`s sunflowers planted into the garden this weekend as they are taking over my kitchen!!
enjoy~ what ever you are doing!! byeeeeeeeeeeeeee xx
