Delightful Challenge

Good morning bloggers are you all ready for the heatwave? Yippee I am got the suntan lotion and sunglasses ready!!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Delightful Challenges and our theme this week is use Designer Paper.  How easy can that be because we all love our papers - its cutting into them that may be the problem.  That's why I love digital papers because you can use them and use them and use them and you always have them there at hand, just print out as much or as little as you need.  Here is my card this week:

I've used Wendy's fabulous Bizzy Bear for my image which is available from Digital Delights and you can get it here.  I have added the ticket sentiment which I printed on Coredinations and you can get the Ticket Sentiments here.  My designer papers are also by Wendy at Digital Delights and they are called Busy Bees and are available here, they are so bright and cheerful - lovely for spring and summer.  I have coloured the image with Copics and cut out and matted with Spellbinders.  I added Stickles to his wings which you can just about see.  The border is Ironworks by Spellbinders and the flower is Marianne die.  Ribbon and bee charm are from my stash.

We are sponsored this week by:

Robin's Nest are kindly giving the lucky winner a $15 certificate to their store so what's stopping you? Get out your DP's and start cutting and colouring.  Do stop by Delightful Challenge and see what my lovely team mates have been doing some wonderful work and so creative!!
