A Black and White card

Good morning everyone.. a nice sunny here today in Malta finally.. but still we decided not to go to Gozo today.. much to my dismay :(  Hubby thought it best we stay home and not go out all day long as our older son will tomorrow be starting his A Level exams :(  Was so looking forward to go and to meet up with Pam and Lorraine again.. .. the sacrifices we do for our kids!!! 

Anyway.. thought I would share a card today that I was asked to do by a friend. Two friends of hers were opening a boutique and wanted a card to congratulate them and this is what I came up with..

Didn't have any nice ladies fashionable stamps, so decided to go for silhouettes .. thinking that black and white is in at the moment :)
Both the skyline and the leaves flourish (from which I cut out the flowers) are Memory Box dies, the corner die is DieNamics, while the square die.. to resemble a shop window, is a Spellbinders.

Entering my card in these challenges today
Stampin' for the Weekend - DIE CUTS and/or PUNCHES
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - ANYTHING BUT BIRTHDAY

and finishing off my post now with some happy mail which I received this week woo hoo :)
This came all the way from USA ...

 and was sent to me by the lovely Jacque, as lucky me, I won one of her lovely Sunday Sweet Stuff :) Thank you so much Jacque, you are so generous xx 
Don't forget to join in too for your chance to win. 

Thank you for looking everyone.
