Warm Thoughts- The Flower Challenge

Hello and Welcome back.

Time for a reminder card for 

You still have time to play along with us.

This month we are using some of the gorgeous images created by 

She is also our Guest this month and has offered a prize of two of her lovely digital designs for our lucky winner!  She has some really beautiful designs in her store.  If you click on her name above, it will take you there.

Our design team will be using some of them for their shaped cards this month too!

So here's what I did to create my card.
This month, we are using Alex's digital images for our cards and the one I am using is called Christmas Frame.  So I took the digi and opened it into my 'Paint' program on my computer.  I sized it bigger as I wanted to use just one of the flower images on my circle card and printed it out.

Next, using my largest Spellbinder circle die, I cut out a circle card base.  When I laid my die onto my folded cardstock, I left it up a bit so that the top would stay intact and together on the fold to create the circle base.
I set that aside and cut a smaller circle that fit inside.  I fussy cut out my digi and coloured it using my Copic makers, then fit it within the smaller circle die cut.
I glued it all together, added the embossed sentiment with pop dots and some blue sequins.
The finishing touch was to add some shiny Nuvo drops to my flower center.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

I would never have know that this was the same digi as your other DT card, Karen. The Poinsettia looks so different blown up like that and beautifully colored in blue.

Bonnie said...
