YOUNG AT HEART {My Besties Germany Guest Designer}

{Young at Heart ...
Slightly older in other places}

It was such an honour to have won a Guest Designer spot over at
My Besties Germany with a Besties card made for their challenge blog.
Thank you so much for having me.
Now isn't she just pure fabulosity having an awesome time at the beach.  Her name is MEET SUNSHINE and she is one of the wonderful My Besties FLUFFY gals and you can purchase her here

  I have coloured her with Photoshop CS3. The brads and design papers are from my stash. The  folded flowers and bunting have been created with flower and circle punches.   The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  I have used dry chalks to chalk  the sentiment.
