First DT Card for Dream Valley!

This is my first posting as a DT Member for the Dream Valley Challenge Blog and I'm so excited. A nice easy them of "Anything Goes" for this fortnightly's challenge. I got out my Macro Lense to take this piccie and with my Photoshop Elements and a new laptop I hope my photo skills have improved. Hard to tell as every screen is different but I'm happy with the results.
The papers are Basic Grey and backed on Bazzill cardstock. A few punched leaves and butterflies, Viva Pearl Pen, lace and flowers from stash.
So if not before I'll be back in a few days with another card!

Heres a few challenges;
Joanna Sheen - Celebrations
2 Sisters - Things with Wings
Fussy & Fancy Friday - Happy Birthday or Animal Print
Crafty Anns - Lets Think Hot
Charisma Cardz - Over the Rainbow
Magical Monday - Anything Goes
Gingerloft - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking and I really appreciate all the lovely comments I have been receiving.
Enjoy the rest of your week
