Buttons and Lace

It is hubby's last day off today and the boys return back to school as well. One of them starts tomorrow and the younger one starts next Monday, and so, before they returned back to school, they have invited over their friends. Yesterday we had five boys here and today we have another five, but older ones this time, and a nice girl as well.... 

They have just left now, so here I am now posting my card for today which is my DT Card for this week's new challenge at I ♥ PROMARKERS. The theme for this week is BUTTONS AND LACE.

For my card this time I have decided to use one of my really gorgeous Tickled Pink Stamps.. can't believe I have never used this stamp before, she is adorable. 

The background paper on my card was a magazine freebie, butterfly is new, as is the doily and lucky me, this was in the candy that I won from the crafty little bee Cebelica. Leaves dies are Marianne Creatables and corner stamps are from Lily of the Valley. I love how it turned out, so pleased that I managed to use some old stuff from my stash too, like the flowers, lace and buttons.

We are this week sponsored by:
and the lucky winner will win a £10 gift voucher from the store.

I am entering my card in these challenges today
