Songbird Challenge

I have some great news this morning, there is a new challenge blog - SONGBIRD CHALLENGES and today is their first challenge.  Each challenge will be based on a song title or lyric and this one is - ANYTHING GOES - based on the musical of the same name.  I was delighted to be invited to Guest Design for this, their very first challenge and this is my card:

I used the fab image Candy Land Dreams from Meljen's Designs who are sponsoring the challenge.

The papers are Echo Park - Little Boy, I have purchased a digital copy of these papers now, so I'm not afraid to cut into them anymore!  I printed the image several times, in different sizes so that I could decoupage some of the lollipops and also use them as embellishments.  I have added lots of 3D Crystal Lacquer to the image and embellishments which, of course, doesn't show up in the photograph.  The sentiment is computer generated, I wanted something quite simple because I thought this card would be ideal for a child.

The inside of my card has been decorated to complement the front:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Stampavie and More Challenge 173 - Birthday
The Corrosive Challenge 155 - They Say It's Your Birthday
Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge 85 - Birthdays
Delightful Challenges - Delightful Birthday
