Guest Designer Spot at Designed 2 Delight!

Welcome to Part 1 of my week as a Guest Designer for Faith - artist and owner of - Designed 2 Delight! The perks of being a guest designer is that I got the image before anyone else, but the downside is that she asked me to keep a secret! Ahhh!

Garden Party is the next free image at Designed 2 Delight that I am showcasing for you today. It was so much fun to pull out my color pencils/OMS and color in this happy spring image. I love the little mice eyeing the cupcake! I kept the design simple but I just 'had' to add some bling and glitz. (If you play along from the 'get-go' at the beginning of the month you will get a free image the next week. If you didn't have a chance to grab the first freebie, never fear, you can find it in her shop along with some other amazing digi images)

You will find this card at the designers blog - Card Ideas Challenge Blog.
