Oldie but a Goodie - Anything but Christmas!

This fortnight at Oldie but a Goodie, we want to see:

'Anything, but Christmas!'

Our sponsor this week is:

The prize from Bugaboo Stamps is 7 free digis!

I've gone about as 'un-Christmassy' as possible with my card...and have made a birthday card using bold, bright colours and a cute (and very summery!) image from Bugaboo Stamps called 'Summer Butterfly Bear - Ice Cream'...he was a freebie a couple of summers ago. The papers are all from the '72 & Sunny' pad by We R Memory Keepers...I added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen...and the sentiment is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts.

I'm also entering this card into the follwing challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge.
