Congratulations !

Hi everybody .
Its really really chilly around here :( like -7degrees today! 
I am not going out much ... Just remain in the warmth of the house .
Which gives me plenty of time to create more cards :D 
I made a congratulations card today. 

 What do u think of the layering ? 
Well its defiantly inspired by the sketch @ Simon says stamp challenge 
For this card i have used quite the palest of papers ... 
somehow wanted to pick up the shabby chic element of dullness . 
To make this card ,I cut the card base with
Sizzix Pop 'n Cuts XL Die Set - Card, Horizontal A2 w/Circle Label, 3-D (Pop-Up)    
without using the pop up die inside. 
Then i randomly cut my pattern papers in different sizes 
With a few labels to peep out from under the rectangle and square pieces
 The labels are cut with 
Then again I used the 
Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 4PK - Tags 
for the oval tag in the center. 
Over which i have used the  
Sizzix Framelits Die Set 12PK - Tags, Sentiments 
to cut out my inkadinkado stamp sentiment. 
Over which i used my stars die 
that come with the  
 Sizzix Sizzlits Die Set 3PK - Party Set #2
and finally the beautiful border die in grey is cut with 
Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 4PK - Borders
 I tried doing something about the background this time during photography 
Didn't want images of my house walls and closet in the background :) 
What do u think pink looks better or black ? couldn't decide !
