My totally exciting news, a new challenge and a card to go with it!!

Well, if you visit my blog regularly you will have noticed a new DT badge in my sidebar!!  Woooohoooo I have been asked to be a part of the Dream Team at Die Cut Dreams Challenge blog by the fantabulous Susie Sugar.  I had noticed that they were having a DT call and so submitted this card for it.....
....... and they must have liked it because I am now a part of the Design Team!  How cool is that??
So, a new challenge and a card to go with it obviously refers to the new challenge over at Die Cut Dreams which this week is to use Gingham.  You can use anything on your card so long as Gingham features on it as well.  There are some fabulous projects posted over on the challenge blog from the Design Team, all you have to do is click the name above the photo and you can visit all the DT blogs to see more details about their fabulous projects.  Its the first week of the month so as usual we are very lucky to be sponsored by Vikki over at Posh Pins & Charms Vikki is going to give the winner 3 Random packs of her lovely pins . Hop over to the Posh Pins & Charms where you will find an array of gorgeous posh pins for all your crafts at very affordable prices.
So without further ado, here is my card:
I have used an image which I received in a RAK from a very very dear friend some time ago (I think it is CC Designs - please correct me if I'm wrong) and this was used with one of Susie's fabulous Die Cuts from her store Die Cut Dreams.  The Gingham paper I have used is from a Papermania capsule collection called  Sunshine.
I used the sketch at Papertake Weekly which I have shown below:
Now I used an oval for my image rather than a square - hope it still counts!!  The flowers are a recent purchase from Jude at Crafts International (thanks Jude).  I added a bow and some sparkle (using Crystal stickles) to the flowers. 
I hope you like my card and I can't wait to see what you have to offer us for this challenge.  So good luck to you all and more importantly HAVE FUN!!
