This week theme is what I call a challenge.  But I managed to survive.... 
OK, kind of survive LOL!!!

First let's see who our sponsors are for this week:

Through the Craftroom Door
* One Year PDF subscription

The Stamping Boutique
* Winner's Choice of 3 Digis

A Day For Daisies
* $16 Gift Certificate

I kept this card simple because my brain couldn't produce anything for this theme.  I don't like fairies and Halloween gives me the creeps.  So I am quite limited as far as my imagination goes ;)

I made my own version of a modern Dorothy following the yellow brick road, only this time she is walking the yellow flowered path LOL!!!

I found the background image while searching for inspiration at >>Free Great Picture<< .  They have a lot of great images perfect for a quick card.  
You download , print , add your personal touch and off you go with a great almost instant card.

Here is my full card.  It has only the background image, that sweet girl from Anne's Cards for you, some glitter and voilá, a card in less that 30 minutes.  OK, OK... it took more than that but it was easy ;)

Have a great day and visit us as DYSU to play with this week challenge.
