DCM weekly dare - Photo Finish

This weeks Dare at
is set by Tracie (Bondgirl) and is titled Photo Finish....
This week I want you to make a card for any occasion but it must include a photograph somewhere! The photo subject can be people, items, locations, flowers, absolutely anything so get snapping. Dont forget to check copyright if you are using someone elses photographs in your art work
We're very happy to have the wonderfully talented Sylvie (crazystamps) joining us for a couple of weeks as our Guest Designer. If you're not already a fan of her work, please take a few minutes to check out her blog - you won't be sorry!
Alrighty then.. here's my card, I've gotta say I smiled most of the time making this little number..lol! The lads really are Very Funny in their special party hats!!!
So I used - Basic Grey PP, Stampin Up spotty stamp from 'delight in life' set, & month stamp from 'its a date' set, Image from Tuscan Rose CD, Rub-ons from American Crafts Mini Marks, button, crystals, 7 Gypsies circle stickers (cut down from tabs) computer generated journaling, Bazzill Cardstock and my machine....
Now I know I've been tagged by some Beautiful Bloggin Chicky Babes :O)
and I'm getting to them.. sorry girls..but I promise sometime this week!
So Have you Dared to DARE?...Come on I dare you!!!!
