Wishful Thinking!

Well hello everyone, it must be Friday again!!!
I'm back with my DT card for
Digi's With Attitude! Challenge #19
"Wishful Thinking" Where do YOU wish you were right now?

 Here's my card!

This is Beach Tween! She's having a lovely time on the beach, daydreaming of her Prince Charming coming along some day & sweeping her off her feet!
She & Video Gamer Tween another newbie can be found in the Digi's With Attitude! Store from today!

This weeks Challenge is very kindly sponsored by
Bearly Mine Designs
They are kindly offering up a  Prize of 2 Digi Sets of the winners choice for our first winner!
This is of couse in addition to the normal
Digi's With Attitude! $10 Gift Voucher (1 for every 25 entries)
On to how I made my card! The card base was a 14cm x14cm square. I just can't seem to stop making square cards at the moment!!! I promise I'll do another shape next time!

I coloured the image with Promarkers as always and cut her out with a nestie on the Big Shot.
I followed a sketch from my file for the design of this card.
The DPs I used were kindly provided by our sponsor this week! There were several different designs, from different collections in the bundle we were given, so can't advise what they are!
You'll just have to pop on over & check it out for yourself!!!
The paper lacey border was part of a prize I won from Lyn over at  Spyder's Corner for guessing how many punches she had used on a particular card!
My prize was a big padded envelope stuffed with punched bits & pieces! Lucky me eh!!
The sentiment ticket was part of a set from
Sentiments 4 You, (check out the website & their Friday Freebies!) I coloured it up with promarkers too & mounted on foam pads for dimenson!
Embellishment wise, I have my silver peel off butterflies which I stuck onto acetate, then cut out, folded the wings back & attached with Pinflair Glue ,some self adhesive pearls around the image.

& this little ribbon flower embellie which was part of a Blog Candy that I won from The Glitter Fairy, to celebrate the birth of her son! I really am a lucky girl aren't I!!!
Thanks for stopping by! I really hope you can find the time to join in with us at Digi's With Attitude! & tell us where you wish YOU were right now!
Did I mention that this post is scheduled & right this minute I should be on the lovley island of

Hope fully soaking up the sunshine

  while the cat sitter looks after the house, the plants, the goldfish & my fluffy buddy Sammy!
