Challenge card - just for you

I could not have ridden back faster from our cycle holiday with the knowledge that my craft room is not being used! I pedalled and pedalled and I am so happy to be back in my room. Actually I am glad to be back home and look forward to the next 5 months (even though it is winter) off from our cycling.
Off course I was a bit rusty when it came to my first card in 6 weeks but I am happy with the results.

I have made this card for the following blog challenges:
Jay Gees Nook #5 - colours of light blue, white and yellow
Scrapbook Boutique - use at least 3 buttons
Card Patterns - sketch 106
I made the white flowers out of pipe cleaners but just wrapping it around a pen and used buttons as the flower centers, the paper is from Kaiser, the sun is from Hero Arts bee happy stamp set, the clouds are from Verve Up, Up & Away stamp set.
Thanks for looking.

Riding a bike cleares your mind and gives new inspiration. I know. Turned out very well for you, as your card is beautiful.
