I've entered a challenge!

Hello everyone
Thank you for calling and your comments. I had a fabulous week end. My daughter and I went to see Mark Anthony at the O2 It was amazing and as most of the audience was Latino we were dancing in our seats - boy the Latinos know how to party! One lady asked why were we there, realising we were British and we just said that we dance Salsa. She gave my daughter a huge hug! The gentleman seated behind me, tapped me on the shoulder and he partnered me in a salsa. Not easy when you're on different levels but it was great
Now, today's card I am going to enter into a challenge. I don't do this very often and actually had something new to use. Most of the time I look at challenges and think of older stuff that I could use. So, this is going to be entered in Moving Along With The Times which the current theme is "No Designer Papers" I was inspired by a Die Cutting Essentials magazine example.

I'm going to finis this quick because a)blogger is playing me up and b) my laptop is poorly again - it's overheating and crashing
