This week we have fabulous sketch from former team member Pam over at The Pixie Cottage and it's so versatile that I know you are going to want to use it.



We have the additional theme of "Fun and Games" so if you picked up the free digital image from last week's challenge then you have no excuses, you have to come and play with us!

I had fun with the extras on this one. I airbrushed the background and then added a little paper piecing with the embossed balloons, I thought it looked cute :)
