Hello Ducks!!

OMGoodness we're almost there EEEKKK!!!
Sunday already!! This time next week we'll be well in the throes of Christmas day!!!
Anyhoo, for now it's time for a new challenge at
 The Crafty Pad!
This week for challlenge #152 we'd like to see
Anything BUT Christmas!!!
Here's my card!

It;s actually a gift voucher holder for my niece & her new husband!
They got married earlier this year!
I made an A5 card by folding an A4 sheet of 
Linen texture card in half.
I added 3 panels of  plain pink paper then topped those
with a very pretty pink floral DP which was part of a candy I won!

I think the colours I have used fit the Colour Q #115 Challenge
The image is Roshell Ducky & Eggward!
One of my many Crafty Pad Designs favourites!!
I have used this image before on  this card 

This fits in with the challenge at
Make it Colourful, where you are required to recolour an image

The Hello Ducks! sentiment just came to mind when I looked at the card,
I printed it off in Sunshine Poppy font then added a matt of the pink paper!
Embellishment wise, I added a few buttons & a pink bow!

Inside the card,I very simply added two little strips of paper 
adhered at either end to hold the gift vouchers in place!
I hope the recipient is happy with it! I kinda like it myself! lol
