Thinking of You Flowers (Deedee's Digis)

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a CAS card I made with the April Digi of the Month from Deedee's Digis. This is a progressive challenge. Since I made a card last month using the March digi, I received this April digi for free! You can join at any time; see details here. I'm trying to get my monthly progressive challenge cards made early for a change!


I printed the floral image twice.  The first was embossed with Cuttlebug Juli's Garden and the second was die-cut into a circle using Nellie's Multi-frames. I enhanced the colour of the image with Prismacolor pencils and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen, and then I affixed it with foam tape.  I like how the tendrils extend out from beneath the popped-up circle.  The sentiment is from From the Heart Stamps. Lastly I added some sequins in rust, green, and gold.

I would also like to support these fun challenges:  Artistic Inspirations AG with Flowers UE; Card Mania Flowers 1/3; Craft Your Passion AG 2/3; Craftin Desert Diva's AG UE; Crafty Calendar Add a Sentiment 2/3; Crafty Sentiments Lots of Flowers 1/3; Creative Inspirations AG Optional Sketch UE; Die Cut Divas In the Garden UE; DL.ART April Linky AG UE 1/day; Emerald Faeries Spring Flowers/Easter 1/3; Fantastic Tuesday AG with Die or Punch UE; HIMCR Think Spring 1/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Let's Craft and Create Seasonal Flowers 1/3; Loves Rubberstamps AG UE; My Craft Creations April AG UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; Papertake Weekly AG 1/5; Pile it On Die Cuts or Punches UE; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; Sweet Stamps Blog Flowers 1E; The Corrosive Hop into Spring 2/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 5/5; Your Next Stamp Colour Challenge 1/3
Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

This is gorgeous. I just made another card with this image and did not even think of printing it twice so that the tendrils could come out from behind the popped image. Fabulous idea. I will try to keep that one in my memory bank. Your little sequins are the perfect amount of bling. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Deedee's this month. Can't wait to see what you come up with next month. Enjoy your day.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I like how you embossed the one image and popped the other one over it so you could see the tendrils on the embossed piece--very clever. I like these pretty spring colors.
