Happy Birthday ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #32}

We returned last night from a weekend at Pilansberg Nature Reserve, near Sun City, South Africa.  Saturday night we watched our first Huisgenoot Skouspel at the Sun City Superbowl.  It was great watching all the South African singers live.  We also saw some great wild animals in the Pilansberg Nature Reserve.

This week our theme for Challenge #31 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is  Anything Goes  and there are four prizes up for grabs. I used the  Zipper Zelda image from DigiStamps4Joy.  You can find her here.   This beautiful digi scene reminded me of little blue birds, hence the colours used. 

So hold onto your seats again, its a centre stepper once again. I coloured Zelda with H2O's and dry chalks.  The paper folding square embellies were created with a Heart-/Envelopes template (which I have had for more than 10 years) from Green Sneakers. The gorgeous sentiment was a freebie from Hannelie from Desert Diva.

I really do hop you will play along with our Anything Goes challenge this week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner.

  40. Another beautiful card Desire I just love your cards. Those button embellishments are gorgeous along with the image and colouring. Lucky you going to Sun City, we were there about 20 yrs ago and the nature reserve it's fanastic. My son and d/in/l had african singers at their wedding and I always remember listening to a group at Victoria and Alfreds Waterfront they were marvelous
