For my card, I went with an Anniversary theme and used an image from Arthur's Clipart.  This card just sort of grew and ended up being an 8x8 square in the end!...
...The papers are from Prima Fairy Rhymes and Divine Collection paper pads.  The MS clay frame was made using the moulds that I won from the lovely Mandy's follower candy and the flowers are all from WOC.  The die cuts I have used are Spellbinders Circle, Marianne Stitched Flower circle, Crafts Too Label, Cheery Lynn Leaf Strip and Spellbinders Parisian Accents border die.  I added a pink satin ribbon and bow, pearl pins and finished with a touch of glitter and some pearl accents...
...I coloured the sweet picture with my Pro/Flexmarkers and here's the colour list I used :
Skin - Blush, Dusky Pink, Coral
Girl's Jacket - Blender, Honeydew, Pastel Green, Soft Green
Girl's Hat and Boots - Muted Pink, Tea Rose, Watermelon
Boy's Jacket - Soft Mauve, Lavender, Cool Grey 3 & 4
Boots - Amethyst, Purple, Slate, Cool Grey 3
Hat - Pastel Beige, Soft Khaki, Khaki
Puddles - Aquamarine
...Instead of an insert, I added a panel inside with the message, 'My perfect day has nothing to do with the weather or what I am doing.  My perfect day is whenever I'm with you.  With love on our Anniversary'...slushy, I know, but sometimes it's nice to have a bit of romance!?!
Well, that's it from me!  Hope you like my inspiration and that you can join in with our fantastic challenge this week, with such amazing prizes, it'd be a shame not to!  I look forward to visiting and seeing your wonderful creations and good luck in the draw!
