Oh dear I am soooo late posting my card for the digi doodle challenge – not a good start to my guest designer stint :( I did actually schedule my post but somehow it has disappeared (now it was probably my fault as I’m not very technologically minded, as my buddy Gina will confirm).
Onto the challenge for this week. We would like you to “tie it up” you can use anything you like on your cards as long as we can see something tied on it, be it ribbon, twine, raffia – whatever you like.
For my card I used a gorgeous image from the digi doodle shop called “pansies” and as I had the unfortunate task of making a sympathy card for a lady at work I thought this image would be the perfect choice.
For my tying I used some pretty ribbon that I found in my stash and wrapped it around my image panel a few times before tying it in the bow. I used a fairly soft colour scheme and a simple sentiment and my card was done. I am really pleased with the result though.
The rest of the DT have created some wonderful samples for your inspiration, so please pop over and take a look. I hope you will have time to take part as I would love to come and take a look at your cards.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
Pollycraft challenge – ribbon and bling (pearls and stickles)
A spoonfull of sugar challenge – floral delight
Alphabet challenge – F is for flowers
The townscrapper challenge – use scraps
Simon says stamp challenge – recipe – 1 image, 2 papers, 3 embellishments (ribbon, pearls and butterfly)
I hope you are having a great week so far, can’t believe its Friday already tomorrow (but so glad too). Before I go I just want to wish my dad a very happy birthday for today – he’s doing really well after his knee surgery and is walking around on his crutches without any trouble now. Thanks for stopping by today.
