KEEP IT HAPPY {Guest Designing at My Besties International}


It is such an honour to have won a guest designer position over at MY BESTIES INTERNATIONAL.  Thanks so much. Please hop over and have a look at all the guest designers' and talented design team's creations.

I have created this little center step card using this cute My Besties Girl which you can purchase here.
The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC, I just added the Happy Birthday.
I have coloured her in Photoshop CS3.  The papers (are from my scraps file), chipboard, buttons and brads are from my stash.  The crochet flowers have been made for me by a very dear friend. The folded scallop corners have been created with a scallop square punch.

I would love to enter this into the following challenges:
