Hot Off The Press Papers

This month's Simply Cards and Papercrafts comes with some gorgeous free Hot Off The Press papers that I couldn't wait to play with - I especially like the tape measure effect:

The papers are quite busy so I've used quite a simple layout. I made the flower embellishment from 2 die cut flowers from a pack I bought years ago from Lakeland - coloured to match the papers and a button added for extra interest. The greeting is a rub-on I've had for years.

I've entered this card into the current challenges at:

Unstampabelles - Birthday
One Stop Challenge - Anything Goes
Dream Valley - make your own flowers/embellishments

Bye for now
