The Paper Whimsy Forum have a bimonthly quote 5x5 challenge running from 30th March. The first quote is: If you cant teach me to fly, teach me to sing. I almost got it right LOL. I have used a distressed and collaged background with an acetate transfer on top, it came out like a gloss finish which I really like. It is then embellished and the paper whimsy image added. TFL.
