CES Challenge - Embellish it!!

Morning - the sun is shining out there today, thank goodness as my two girls have gone off to do a boot fair to raise funds for a festival they want to go to in the summer!!! Fingers crossed they do well!!  Me, I'm have my feet mollycoddled and my hair trimmed in readiness for my Italian adventure next week!! 
Firstly though, it's Saturday which means our next challenge at CES Challenges.  This week's theme has been chosen by our fabby Kaylou and it's Embellishing - use at least 3!  That's like music to my ears as I love embellies but having finished my card, it actually lookes quite restrained!!! 
A friend from work has just had a baby boy so I used this too cute Lili of The Valley image and layered it up very simply on the Wild Rose Studio Polka Dots paper and a bit of gingham, using the HOTP paper as my matting paper as the coloured matched so perfectly.  Both the Wild Rose and HOTP are from Crafty Emma's as are the Baker's Twine, the ribbon, Card Candy, Dew Drops, the Tacky glue and the Promarkers!   
Even these cute little buttons are available there - pictures a bit blurry but think you have to see them closer to see how cute they are!!  Think I managed three types of embellishments!!
The little sentiment tag is from Kay and Co, btw.  The girls that make up the brilliant CES DT team have got some wonderfully embellished makes to show you so pop on over and enjoy. 
Enjoy the sunshine too if you have some, or at least have a great weekend!
