Oldie for FFFFriday

Hello All

Thank you for taking the time to pop in.
This weekend looks like we're going to be lucky enough to have sunshine. Tonight we're off to a party of a fellow Salsero and tomorrow OH may take me to a local Craft Fair (what's he after?) Enjoy whatever you have planned.

Today's oldie inspired by Erika's blog Here 

I gave the card to a female work colleague, I was so pleased with it at the time but now I think I was trying to be too clever and made yellow bows to pick out the colour in the "tiles". I will do it again but go for blues or pinks.... It's was inspired by a Sue Wilson design  and this one by me! Here 

7x7" card blank - It needed to be big enough for lot's of signatures
Pale pink and yellow card stock from stash
Sue Wilson Art Deco Embossing folder
Spellbinders Marvellous Squares 
Serif "Aviary" collection Iused a piece of "material" and sized it to fit the die
Sue Wilson 3D bitty bows
