The Paper Shelter Challenge---"Anything Goes"

I have been teaching the 'pre-teens' during Children's Church. Last week we talked about sharing with others.  I had them each talk about how they could share this week. My middle grand-son said he could pick some of my flowers and give them to his mom. I must admit I had to chuckle to myself as he was so sincere. I like to share the cards I make. I make sure everyone at church receives a birthday card. I have also donated cards to our nursing home. The nurses give them to patients who normally do not receive cards. It is a small way of bringing a small about of joy to others. How about you? What do you do to spread a little joy? In these troubled times a little joy is needed. Even if it is some flowers from your garden for a a little one to give to his mom. On to my card!

I wanted to give this image another color. She is just fun to color and a good practice for me with the highlights and shadows. This is one of the fun and lovely images you can find at THE PAPER SHELTER. You can snag her or one of the other lovely images for our challenge. "Anything Goes" and there is any style of image that you want or need. I kept this card very simple as I wanted the image to be the focal point. A  little ticket with a hear (it came from my stash, and yes I forgot I had them)  and a simple SU happy birthday sentiment, and our little rhinestones were the only embellishments to my card.
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Kathy Mattea
Charlie's got a gold watch, don't seem like a whole lot
After thirty years of drivin' up and down the interstate
But Charlie's had a good life and Charlie's got a good wife
And after tonight she'll no longer be countin' the days
Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses
Ten more miles on his four day run
A few more songs from the all night radio
Then he'll spend the rest of his life with the one that he loves
