Grrrrrrrrr...... and a card!

Grrrrr... because my Cuttlebug is still not with me! The parcel has been lounging around with the Indian Customs and then India Post for around a week now! Frustrating to know that it is sooooo close yet so far! :-(

Today's card is one of my favorites to date. Nothing much t write about... someone I know had asked me to make one for his wife (who is a super dancer and choreographer). This is a sample I made for him. I hope he likes it...

The image of the couple is a clipart. I hand-cut it (I'm trying my hands at the famous Scherenscnitte Silhouette technique these days; even got a new pair of scissors just for that LOL!!Anyway, I had this image in mind ever since he asked me to make the card... The gorgeous floral paper is from Hobby Ideas; the epoxy word sticker is from Donna's Heidi Grace pack :-); the lace, button, flower, rhinestones, twine and eyelets are all from my stash.Hope you like the card too...
Hoping this qualifies for a few challenges:

Ooh-la-la Creations Challenge : A button, a bow(its on my button) and some bling
Cute Card Thursday (once more): Anniversary
Michelle Perkett's challenge on PCP (please count the floral paper and faux stitching till I get another card ready for this! ;-) )

    Don't worry, your cuttlebug will be with you parcel of stamps sat with the post office for 4 weeks before I decided to track it down..they didn't bother informing me that it had arrived..
    Where have you ordered your bug from?
