Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the

we are sponsored this week by 
who are offering the winner 3 digis of their choice

So here is design team inspirational piece, but don't forget to hop over and see the rest of the Design Team's inspirational pieces.
Base layer and contrast is a pale pink card, with Bloomsbury Collection papers from Grimsby Crafts.  The ribbon was from a recent win.  I have used two tiny doilies and cut these and distressed them with TH spun sugar.  I have used My Sentiment Exactly Sister and some more sentiments from Grimsby Crafts which have been edged with the spun sugar and over stamped with swirls.  The image is a Saturated Canary.  The little heart MS punch edges both sides. A little bling at the top under the Wild Orchid Flowers.

Oh and I forgot to say that this is an 8 x 8 inch 40th Birthday Card

Here is a close up of the image coloured in copics

Gorgeous card, Kate! Very fairy tale like. Anyone there to kiss the frog? Now I am thinking is this THE IMAGE by Saturated Canary which was chosen to be drawn especially or is that one still under wraps?
