Delightful Sketches 13 and new releases from Digital delights

I'm afraid I'm a day late with my posting due to illness, but it's worth waiting for as there are some gorgeous new releases at Digital Delights - Nursery Rhyme Sets. Our images are now available in both JPEG and PNG formats! There are also full colour versions of each set available.
PNG files are transparent and wonderful for layering and creating scenes as well as printing your images on colored cardstock!

See my card at the top of the post using the new sketch at Delightful Sketches. I've used the lovely Mother Goose coloured with pro-markers. I've added a number 1 on the nursery rhyme book for a first birthday.The beige backing paper has the alphabet all over it. I've added some ribbon and gems from stash, but kept it all fairly simple. The rest of the DT have come up with some fabulous cards to inspire you.Our Sponsor for this sketch is the fabulous store: My Favorite Things with a $15 gift voucher as the prize.

It's also Freebie Friday, and we have such a cute image for you this week - Envelope Pippin. Just pop along to our SNR or PCP group to grab him before he goes into the store.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
1. By The Cute and Girly - Lets Go to the Movies - the film connected to this card is
The Wacky World of Mother Goose (from 1967)
2. Caardvarks - Digital Elements - Mother Goose, the book and sentiment are all digital images.
