Now for the card! I wanted to do something a bit different, since I use flowers on most of my cards! I've had this lovely Art Deco Sugar Nellie for quite a while but never used it! *hangs head in shame* Then, while tidying, I came across these Kanban papers, and I had one of those 'lightbulb' moments!

The sketch is from The Sugar Bowl Challenge and they want us to use buttons. I turned the sketch on its side. I used black card to mat, and black buttons, because I think that adds to the Art Deco look. The corner embellie is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I did stickle the bubbles, but since the papers have silver and embossing, anything else would have been too much!

Anyway, enough of me - hop along to Dream Valley and peruse the DT's gorgeous creations, and do join in!

Happy May Day, everyone, and thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x
