Watering Can Tulips (ITDK image)

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to extend a warm welcome to my new Bloglovin' follower - Candice Fields - so nice to have you here!

Today I'm sharing a card I made with the May Digi of the Month from Imagine That... digis by Kris. There are two digis this month, and I chose to make my card with Watering Can Tulips. This is a progressive challenge. Since I participated last month using the April digi, I received the May digi for free! You can join at any time; see details here Thank you, Kris, for your free digis!


I like to use pre-coloured images when I don't have much time to spend in my craftroom, like this week!  I die-cut the image with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares and used an inlaid die-cut technique to keep this card one layer, flat for mailing.  The turquoise panel was embossed with Cuttlebug Simple Flowers.  I stamped a thank-you sentiment from Impression Obsession Sentiments 1 clear stamps, added a butterfly charm, and finished it off with a decorative corner of tiny pearls (Flourish with a Bling).

I would also like to support these fun challenges:  Craft Your Passion AG 2/3; Crafting by Designs One Layer 1/3; Creative Fingers AG 3/3; Deep Ocean Flowers UE; DL.ART May AG UE 1/day; Dragonfly Dreams Lauralcraft How does your Garden Grow UE; Fussy and Fancy Lots of Flowers UE;  HIMCR HIMCR03NSD May Flowers 2/3; HIMCR HIMCR02NSD Let's Get Digital 3/3; HIMCR HIMCR05NSD Die Cuts 3/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Jo's Scrap Shack FFC AG 1/3; Kitty Bee Aloha Friday In the Garden 1/2; Loves Rubberstamps AG UE; Mema's AG 2/3; Not Just Cards AG UE; Paperbabe Stamps AG; Papertake Weekly AG Optional Twist No Patterned Paper 2/5; Penny's Paper-Crafty AG 1/3; Scribbles Designs Spring has Sprung 3/3; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; Suzy Bee's Bloomin' AG No Patterned Papers UE; The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Add a Charm 1/2; Tuesday Throwdown Flowers for Her 1/3; V's Sweet Ideas Emboss It 2/2; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5

Kitty - you have been making such lovely and fun cards!! Loved the Dad's day off one and this tulip one is simply gorgeous!!!! I am sorry for the lack of my commenting lately - I have been struggling and doing some soul searching about life, my faith, and my place in this world so I have not been on the computer much!! I have looked through your awesome posts with all your amazing creations and rather than go backwards and comment on all of them I am going to start fresh!! Hope you are doing well and that you know I appreciate you - thought it was so cool that we both won over at STAMPlorations!!! Fun, huh?!??!!!! Take care and I promise to try and keep up better!!!

Love your card Kitty - that blue just really pops! Super pretty with the embossed bg and your butterfly and pearls too. Thanks so much for playing at Imagine That! dbk xx

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Love that blue, since that image was precolored you matched it perfectly. This card makes me happy! I just uncovered some UM kitty images that I've never used. I suspect I'll need to at least try them out although I hate UM images (these have no cling).

Oh my gosh, that is just gorgeous! x

What a great clean and simple card Kitty. I like your little butterfly charm. I know what you mean about saving time. Kris' precoloured digis are great for that aren't they?

Thanks so much for entering your card into our latest challenge over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog. Good luck in the draw.

I'm back with a different hat on this time. Thanks so much for entering your card into last month's stamp of the month challenge over at Imagine That! Digis by Kris. I hope you'll get the chance to join us again this month.

Oh and thanks for the heads up on the two wins. I rely on Paper Playful and since both those challenges are odd dates, I'd probably have missed out on the prize if you hadn't told me. I appreciate you keeping your eye out for my name. It means a lot!
