Celebrate your Day

Hi and welcome to a post to announce the start of the latest challenge over at ATSM.
Here is my inspiration card, can you guess what our theme is?

So let your imagination go wild!
This week our sponsor is

Happy Little Stampers was created in 2015 by Kylie (owner of ATSM and ATCAS). Kylie wanted to bring out a line of stamps that were useful for every day crafters. From cute to whimsical images, from everyday to funky sentiments there is something for everyone!
Prize: $15 gift certificate

For my card I decided to make another wedding card for my Son. He remembered to tell me that he was off to Greece to a wedding with his girlfriend, so I jokingly said so you'll be needing a few wedding cards this year, he said er, I guess so!
When your kids get to certain ages they seem to be either going to Christenings or weddings!
As my Altenew Painted flowers were still on my desk, I thought I would use them.
I also found out by visiting someone's blog for commenting that Altenew's challenge is Wedding focused.
Over at Less is More, their colour challenge is to use your kitchen colours, well for those in the know, my whole house is themed around deep pinks, lime green and magenta which happen to be the same as the colours on the Altenew photo.
I used an woodgrain EF folder on some off white card to represent the wooden kitchen units and stamped the outline of the flowers in Memento Elderberry and the rest in Angel Pink and Rose Bud.
I didn't have the correct phrase for the center so made it up by using part of other sentiment stamps from Altenew's Painted Greetings, you was part of thank you, the r in your came from cheer up and the day was the end of birthday! I used silver EP, a nod to the fixtures in the kitchen such as knobs and the stainless steel appliances. 
Layout is from the CAS(E) this sketch.

That is about it from me, but please check out the rest of the team for more Anything Goes inspiration.

I'd like to join in over at -
