Fortieth birthday

   There is another anything goes themed challenge starting today at QKR Stampede. I could not resist this duck pushing the forty block. The digi is called 'pushing forty'.
   I matted dark grey core'dinations onto cream card and after colouring the image using Promarkers I matted it onto yellow card from the cover of an old exercise book. I added black card candi to the corners. The handwritten sentiment was cut out using a Spellbinders label eight die and matted onto card from the exercise book.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Creative Inspirations - any occasion
   Cute Card Thursday - celebrate
   Digi Choosday - anything goes
   Whoopsi Daisy - anything goes with anything but square
   Crafty Catz - anything goes with b is for bug

   Catch the Bug - all creatures big and small
   Creatalicious - anything goes with birthday
