Blooming Blessings


Today starts a new Digi of the Month Challenge at Deedee's Digis.  You must use the Digi of the Month set to participate in the challenge.  If you participated last month, you will receive this month's set for free.  If you didn't participate, then it's available for purchase in the store for a greatly reduced price.  Each month you participate in the challenge, you receive the next month's set for free.  This month's set is perfect for Mother's Day, feminine birthday cards, or just to let a friend know you're thinking of them.

I chose to use some of the pre-colored images in the set.  In Word, I layered the sentiment over the oval frame.  The frame comes with some small flowers on the lower right side.  However, since I was fussy cutting this, I made it easy on myself and fussy cut some of the individual flowers and just layered them on top.  I also added a group of flowers to the top of the frame.  The centers of the flowers were given a drop of Star Dust Stickles (my all-time favorite in the Stickles line).   I added shading around the interior of the frame and around the flowers with Copic Markers.

 The image panel was matted with a doily die cut and then popped up over the layered background.  A sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches (#292) was used for the card design.

The interior sentiment is not from Deedee's Digis.  I'd forgotten to print the interior panel and my hubby was taking a well-deserved nap.  I didn't want to printer to disturb him so I just stamped  the interior greeting with VersaFine ink.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper:  We R Memory Keepers (Anthologie 6x6 pad)
Stamps:  Deedee's Digis (Blooming Blessing), Stampendous (Birthday Wish - interior)
Ink:  VersaFine (Onyx Black - interior sentiment)
Copics: 100, C0, C1, Colorless Blender
Tools/Embellishments:  My Favorite Things Die-namics (Decorative Doily), Stickles (Star Dust), Staedtler fine tip marker (brown)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #303 - Mother's Day/Female
Pile It On Challenge #61 - Sentiment as Focal Point
