Cath Kidston Card ...........

Hi everyone, well I had a few lovely days at Craftaganza and made some lovely craft projects and learnt some new techniques, I will show you some pictures of my projects soon.  However my lovely days away were soon forgotten when I got home as by the time I got back Saturday night my little Grace had started being sick and by Monday evening I was spending the night in hospital with her on a drip as she had acute gastroentertis.  I am so glad we only had to spend one night in hospital and Grace improved enough to come home the next day.  I only got about an hour's sleep when were in hospital so I was in bed at 6.30pm last night!  My little Grace is on the mend now but its going to take a while till she is properly better.

So this is a card that I made a few weeks for my husband's auntie.   I am a bit of Cath Kidston fan so when I went Christmas shopping a few weeks ago in York I brought some wrapping paper from the Cath Kidston shop and I thought it work well as backing paper for cards which is how I have used it here. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
