You are my sunshine

Hi Folks
At last it's the weekend although my Saturday is swiftly running away from me.  Had a few chores and errands to run this morning.  Have now just got back from the hairdresser's as we are going to a 50th Wedding Anniversary party tonight.  So thought I had better post my card for today and do a bit of blogging before I have to get ready.
I have made this card for the freebie challenge over at Dude Time Doodles.  They supply the image and the winner of the challenge gets to be guest designer for the following month.  This image is called Forever Friends and the card has been created for any young lady to give to her young man.

I decided to stick to a colour theme of mainly green (as it seems to be quite topical at the moment) with backing card of bright yellow.  All the papers used were from my scraps box - trying to be good and use some of them up.  As it is a male card I decided not to use ribbon but instead used some brown cord that I had in my ribbon box.  Added some lovely buttons as embellishments.  I did also chalk some blue clouds onto the image but you can't see them very well, if at all.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Dude Time Doodles - freebie challenges
Sketch Saturday - use sketch provided
Sentimental Sundays - Go greeen or recycle
Pile It On - St Patricks Day or shades of green
Kaboodle Doodles - Show us some green
Simon Says - A bit of green
Sassy Studio - Monochromatic
Totally Papercrafts - Male card
Crazy 4 Challenges - Use some green
Card Makin Mamas - Buttons
Sweet Stampin - Use lots of green

Thanks for popping by.  Just time to do a bit of blogging before I get ready to go out.  Will be back tomorrow with some DT cards for new challenges at Dream Valley and Corrosive.
Take care
