Nearly Missed It ....Digital- Ink Co Challenge#1

The 1st ever challenge at Digital-Ink Co finishes in half an hour & I am just about going to make it lol!!! Their challenge was brilliant as they provided a digistamp of a Poppy which was perfect as a neighbour asked me to make a birthday card for her.

I used part of Heidi's sketch from this week's MAWTT challenge as I loved using it this week. The Poppy backing paper is from one of my fave scrapbooking companies Urban Lilly. I am sending my Mum out to Oz with a shopping list when she goes next month. I layered the Poppy onto a dark green embossed card. This was then layered onto a deep red mulberry paper. The ribbon is from my stock. The D&D diecut message was also layered onto the mulberry paper. I added 3 black gems from my stash.

I cut out another digistamp & just coloured in the flowers. Again I layered this onto the dark green card. On the other side I again used the Poppy backing paper & layered the green & white paper in the centre. x Clare x

Pens Used
Aqua Promarkers : Cardamine Red, Permanent Green, Sepia.
