Hello Everyone!

Today is the FIRST Sunday of April and do you know what that means? Its time for Birthday Sundaes Challenge #3 and its an extra special one as we have our very first Sponsored Challenge.

This week's challenge is an ANYTHING GOES Birthday and is being sponsored by Designed2Delight. Designed2Delight is an online digital stamp store with over 100 digital images that are whimsical and FUN images hand-drawn by Faith Skrdla.

Designed2Delight's owner, Faith, generously supplied the design team with images to work with and 2 awesome prizes for the participants. Please check out the Birthday Sundaes post for all the details.

For my card, I choose to use Designed2Delight's Neighbor's Digital Image. I fell in love with the adorable fuzzy bear and the spring-ish feel the image gives. I used PrismaColor colored pencils and Baby Oil to color in the image - please note I'm still learning how to color.

The card is based on the Mojo Monday 184 Sketch.

I used papers from the Jillibean Soup 'Blossom Soup' Collection and Echo Park 'Walk in the Park' Collection.

 The sentiment was created using Photoshop.

NOW, head on over to Birthday Sundaes to see more wonderful cards using images from Designed2Delight. Don't forget to link up your NEW ANYTHING GOES Birthday card by Saturday, April 9th 11:59 EST for your chance to win ONE of TWO prizes sponsored by Designed2Delight.
