Hang out the bunting

As soon as I saw the sketch on Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge I knew I wanted to use this fab paper from American Crafts from the Dear Lizzy range. I've cut into a 12x12 piece to create this card. I was also inspired to use my as yet uninked Unity stamp set by the Polka Doodles challenge who want to see "books". I added some American Craft embellies to the corners and a butterfly from a spring set free with a mag last year. After I used the SU sage cardstock for the image I felt it was a little dull so I added a sprinkling of glitter to the whole image. I'm also entering it into the Simon Says Stamp challenge - Happy Birthday.
