Anything But Christmas at An Oldie But Goodie

Good morning. This is my busy week for DT work and today's share is for

and this fortnight our lovely Lisa has picked the theme


Here's what I came up with:

I had a request for a card for a 16 year old girl recently - something clean and simple but bright and cheery and I thought this fab image from Saturated Canary would be perfect - minus the goose that normally goes with it - carefully edited in Microsoft Paint :o)

My six months old or more items are everything on this card - from the image to the scrummy Design Papers, the ribbon and the floral embellishment.

A touch of stickles added around the image panel and PC generated sentiment panel to finish it off.

Our sponsor this fortnignt is
Bugaboo Digi Stamps
offering 1 lucky winner 7 digi images of their choice

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my DT buddies and to say goodbye to Lisa as this is her last challenge at An Oldie But Goodie :o(
