Constellations PB Challenge # 95

Hello, I hope everyone is enjoying their long Easter break, the sun is out here and Ive got my fingers crossed that it stays dry for the dog walk this afternoon!
Here is a card I finished last night and Im not sure about it, it is a bit dark and moody I think.    Ive used my Penny Black Constellations stamp in Blazing Red stazon and used some digi papers Ive just got from 2 Peas in a Bucket.  Having just refilled the inks in my printer it was spitting out the papers already with slight distressing on them!!  So I had no choice but to go for the distressed look or waste all of the papers.  Ive stitched the backing papers but faux stitched the label as I wasnt organised enough to have not stuck the papers down already by the time I came to do the label - oh, it was late, honest! 
I made a few flowers for the edge from punches and to go with a couple of punched leaves I tore some dp into leaf shapes to add a bit of interest and finished with a few buttons.
This is definitely one of those cards that is in the 'not sure' pile!
Ive just seen from my list that the PB challenge this week is 'check it out' therefore with the slimmest of margins - the tiniest of checked paper! - I am entering this into their challenge.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Keryn, don't worry - the card is nice. The colours red and green are always the best if they are together. I love your job - mostly the nice flowers on the right side of card - very good idea )))

Wonderful Keryn - great card! I hope you are having a lovely Easter weekend. The egg hunt was great fun but probably a little too complicated for most of us - my brain hurts at the best of times. Cheers Claire x
