Mo's Digital Challenge #13

This week, Lisa Cook, one of Mo's DT members, has challenged us to make something for a birthday, so this is an easy one to start off the year.  I know the challenge isn't limited to cards but as that's what I'm up to at the moment, it was easy to come up with a new (and needed) card to enter.

This is the free Bella and Bronte image that Mo kindly produced to celebrate her 500th member on Papercraft Planet - and I think it is wonderful.  Just an absolutely joyous explosion.  So that's how I approached this.  The card will eventually be given to an eight-year old on her birthday and I just know she'll love it.  I'm really pleased with this - I went to town on the layering and pattern - I really wanted to keep the explosiveness of the image. 

Just a little detail, too:

I got these beautiful little flower buttons yesterday as I was on my way home through town (snow days! I love snow days!).  Aren't they cute?  They go so well with the Cosmo Cricket papers.

So, I'm off to DP2 to see if Mr Linky is playing properly this week. Then I'd better make tea before we all starve (though I don't get particularly hungry when I'm crafting - do you?).

Happy crafting
