It's week #167 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and the theme for this week's challenge is Thank You. Our sponsor is POLKADOODLES and the prize is a fabulous  'Fredericka' CD with digi images and all sorts of lovely stuff on it.  It's worth £11.99, so a great prize to be had.

For my card I used one of the 'newish' retro images from Make It Crafty, 'Melody' and she came with her cushion too.  My trellis was cut on the cameo.  The sentiment stamp is from a stamp plate by Sheena Douglass - A little bit sketchy 'Only Words ~ Through the Rain'. Papers are MME, So Sophie and Ooh La La and then I used a Cheery Lynn flower die.  Fringe from my stash. I stamped the cushion with one of my mini Prima stamps in teal Stazon before colouring with my PM's and then stamped over it a 2nd time.

Now, did you know that birds like bananas?  Neither did I until just now.  If I have some that are going a bit off, then I like to bury them around my roses (lots of potassium).  Anyway, yesterday I noticed quite a few birds pecking at my border.  I had no idea what they were pecking at but I knew there wasn't many worms around.  So this morning, I popped out to check for bugs and noticed half a dozen  black banana skins laying on the top.  Hmmm...cats or birds?  Well, I've just sat and watched a thrush merrily pecking away at one of them.  Best I bury the nanas a bit deeper next time, lol.

Entering into:
AS YOU LIKE IT #1 - Fave die cut/punch (I love anything cut on my cameo and this flower die is my fave of all my flower dies).
DIVA'S BY DESIGN - Anything goes.
PENNY'S PAPER CRAFTY #126 - Die cuts/punches. WINNER
WHIMSY INSPIRES #59 - Anything goes.

Super gorgeous card, Lorraine. Love the image you used.... it looks so dimensional. Great cameo work with the trellis!
Never knew that birds love bananas, but out of desperation they will probably try anything to eat.
