Celebration No. ___

The sketch this week from Waltzingmouse:
The inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room:

For my card I also included the Frosted Designs challenge - to use something from around the house as an embellishment.  The pattern paper is from CTMH as is the sentiment.  I stamped the Background Basics PTI stamp set in versamark on the brown panel.  The leaves are from Prima, the cord is from May Arts and the nuts are from hubby's shop.
