More Like The Movies

Good Morning All, 
The weekend is almost  upon us, thank goodness!
It's been a busy week & I've been very tired!
I have yet another Anniversary card to share with you today!
This one is for my brother & sister in law.

I used the small sepia toned image from one of the La Pashe 
Wrinklies At The Movies, decoupage sheets.
(When I was making this card, I had a song going through my head,
it was a tune by Dr Hook, back in the day, More Like The Movies.
I loved that song then & I still do now!)

I wanted to keep the card flat so I could easily pop it in the post.
The card base is A6 Kraft CS. I added a slightly offset plain black mat,
 then a panel of white embossed CS which was offset the other way.
The flimstrip was cut using a spellbinders die & I added some clear 
transparency fim to the cut out sections.
The little ticket sentiment was in my folder of images & sentiments
which have been printed off for a while. I layered up the bits from the
 cut out sections of the fim strip die & added it to the top.

You cant quite see it but I've a added a black panel to the inside of the 
card, with a white heart to write on. I've also added two
little black die cut hearts to decorate.
I hope you like my card, more to the point I hope the anniversary couple do!
Thanks for stopping by.
I'd like to add ths card to the following challenges:

Good Luck

Good morning all!
Is it Monday already?? 
Boo, that means I'm back at work!
I've had a great week off taking in the sights & sounds of the
as well as getting a few things done about the house!
So, now it's back to normality & a brand new challenge over at
Eurekas Stamps where the theme this time is
#155 Button Button (use a button on your creation)

I've used several tiny little, blue heart, buttons on my card!
The image & sentiment are both from Eureka Stamps
The base card is my usual 6"x6" square base.
The image & sentiment were printed onto some smooth card.
I added some clouds using a stencil & Tumbled Glass Distress Ink 
then paper pieced the image with some snippets of paper from the 
First Edition "Bird Song" Paper Pad,  
I added my little buttons to the bows on the tail of the kite.
I hope you like it & I hope you can play along in our
