Happy Birthday! - With a "Wee" little Girl! (and a HUGE piece of news from me!!)

I have been holding in some super news for the past few days and now I'm allowed to spill!! Cuddly Buddly decided that now they have 7 Digital Artists that it was time to have a dedicated team working to promote the fabulous images through bi-weekly challenges and ......I'm on the team!!!!!!
Cuddly Buddly were one of the first places I bought digital stamps from over two years after seeing them in a card magazine I bought on a trip home to England. Over the past two years I have been steadily gathering a selection of images and now I get to use them for you all to see!!!
One of the latest artists draws a line called "Wee Stamps" and today I have a card featuring one of those images (and I had this one even before they put a DT call out!)
I like that I can choose from a variety of artists all in one place and have them all with me seconds after I check out, gotta love that!
I am super excited and after all the harrowing weather the midwest, Texas and southern states have been having it is nice to have something to smile about so I hope you'll celebrate this new team with me!
There are some fabulous DT members there, you can see them on the side bar of the Cuddly Buddly blog, I have no idea how I got picked but I am super excited.
And for you that are "Challenge Addicts" like me be sure to check back on July 1st when Challenge #1 will be launched and I have the honor of choosing the first challenge theme!

Medium - Copic Markers
Die Cut - Spellbinders Exclusive
Border Die - Marianne D Creatables
Rhinestone Brads - Recollections
Pearls - Recollections
Ribbon, Bow and Lace - Offray
Chalk Ink - Dark Brown Cats Eye

This little girl is so sweet and innocent looking, carrying her basket of flowers and cute little bunny friend.
I popped up the whole image on to foam as I could make a space underneath for the lace and ribbon and so all of it sits so nice and smoothly.
I used chalk ink on all the layers for a little vintage feel, I think it goes well with the designs and colors of the patterned paper.
I really hope you like this and be sure to come back tomorrow for a brand new Design Team Challenge at Designed 2 Delight!
