Art Deco

Morning Everyone! Sunday already, what a busy week! My cousin and his wife are visiting from South Africa, so I have spent a busy few days getting things ready for them, so my card for today's challenge got made very quickly yesterday morning - not like me to leave it til the last minute at all! We took them into town yesterday afternoon and showed them the sights of Peterborough (thankfully we have a cathedral!!), and did the traditional English pub thing, and then went out to a Mexican restaurant last night. They refused to go to bed until it was dark, so I hope they slept well as it's off to Duxford today to see all the planes (they are both pilots)!

Anyway, Sunday again, which means it's challenge time over at Eclectic Ellapu! Our theme this week is 'Art Deco'! Well, I will be honest, this one was a puzzler for me, but I found this gorgeous stamp at LOTV, which fit my take on the theme perfectly! I think everyone on the design team had a different take on the theme, but that's what makes us Eclectic!!

What I have used:
Image - Lili of the Valley
Coloured with Tim Holtz DM's
Sentiment - Woodware
Swirl - Magnolia DooHickeys
Corner flourish - Crafty Lynn

I would like to enter the following challenges please:
One Stop Craft Challenge - Pastel colours
The Cupboard Trilogy - Monochrome

Thank you for stopping by! Please remember to pop over to Eclectic Ellapu to see what the Eclectic Pink Team have created!!

Love and light
