HAPPY BIRTHDAY {Guest Designer for My Besties Germany}

{Guest Designing - MY BESTIES GERMANY}

It is such an honour to have been invited by Gudrun to be a guest designer once again over at
 for SEPTEMBER 2017

Thanks so much Gudrun. 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 super cute little garden girl from
Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.

I am sure you will all agree, that she is just adorable.
I have coloured her in Photoshop CS3.
The flowers have been created with punches.  The flourishes have been stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps and fussy cut.  The buttons, brads and photo turns are from my stash.
The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC .
The papers (are from my scraps file) and buttons are from my stash.  

I would love to enter this into the following challenges:

613 Avenue Create - ATG + DistressOption (the flower edges are distressed)
Scrapbook Stamp Society - ATG
Word Art Wednesday - ATG + uplifting sentiment
Classic Design Team Open Challenge - ATG
