Bee crafty challenge #58–DT card

Happy Sunday dear friends.  Where do the weekends go?  I can’t believe it’s already gone 6pm and I haven’t achieved anything yet today lol!  I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend – I have to say the weather here is South Wales has been pretty good, we’ve even seen some sunshine (shhhh don’t want to scare it away)! 

I’m a bad DT member again this month as I’m only now sharing my DT card for this month’s Bee Crafty challenge – but hey at least it’s only the 8th this month (*hangs head in shame*).  We have an easy theme this month – we want to see celebratory cards or crafts, this could be to mark the New Year, or be for a birthday, special event etc... just make 'celebration' the theme and we are especially keen to see balloons.  Here is my card:

I have used a super cute image called “fluffy bunny birthday”  and I coloured him with promarkers and flex markers and also added diamond glaze to his balloon for a bit of shine.  The papers are my minds eye “everyday flair” and the edges were distressed and inked with a cats eye chalk ink pad.

The prize as always is 2 digi images from the bee crafty shop and the challenge ends at the end of the month.

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.
