Exciting New Challenge Starts Today...

 Donna at her Den of Crafts is starting a new challenge today!  The theme is Happy Birthday, a nice easy one to start with & she's offering a fantastic prize for the winner: a Beatrix Potter CD rom AND stamp set - how fabby is that.  The challenge is running for 2 weeks you will find the full challenge rules & details on the blog while you're there why not check out the other DT members gorgeous creations for more inspiration.
My card was made using the celebration paper from the beautiful Dovecraft Wedding designer papers pack & DCWV Spring brads.  The image was free from Bugaboo which I coloured in with ProMarkes & added some sparkle to the cloud.  The border was made using a Martha Stewart punch & I finished the card off with flowers, gems& a greeting. 


The challenges I'm entering my card for these challenges:
Just Us Girls - Digital
Stamp Something - Happy Somethings
Meljen - Sparkle, Glitter, Bling
Totally Papercrafts - Animal Magic
Frosted Designs - Glitter
Be Crafty - Blooming Marvelous 
Shelly's - All That Glitters
Busy Beauties - Anything Goes

I've scheduled this post as we are having a few days away (can't wait) so hopefully it's worked out ok - I will link to the challenges on Wednesday when I get home.
