Daisy Birthday

Good Morning everyone!

What a week it has been! I was back at work last Monday and it was all hens on deck as much work needed to be done. However, I also managed to get the flu on Monday, which has had me "entertained" for the rest of the week. You can imagine I was glad when Saturday came around! I'm feeling better now though :)

Today we are starting a new challenge @ Platypus Creek: "Let's Celebrate a Birthday", nice and easy this time! For my inspiration card, I've combined a PCD digi image with a more traditional decoupage image, I think it really works as you can colour the digi any shade you need to compliment the pre-coloured decoupage image. I'd love to know what you think, all your comments are very much appreciated!
