Digi-Design Card Challenge

Well, it's Sunday evening and I'm gearing up for another work week. I was fortunate enough to take a couple of vacation days last Thursday & Friday, so I've enjoyed a 4-day weekend!

I decided to try my hand at using a digi-design to create a card this afternoon. I discovered on my blogger friend, Stacie's site,  that there's a challenge going on over at Glitterbabe's, so I downloaded some of their free digi-art to give it a try.  I printed 3 flowers and sponged ink over each of the images. I then cut the flowers out, adding bling to the top flower, and then layered the flowers using 3-D dots to add extra dimension. The leaves are cut out free-hand and sponged with ink. The vines are skinny strips of cardstock that I wrapped tightly around a toothpick and then slid off, attaching with Gluedots under the edge of the flower. The background paper is from the CTMH "Bella" collection. I used black cardstock and a Martha Stewart border punch to create the edge, and then attached a strip of black polka dot organza ribbon to the bottom. Here's the card I created using their free flower design...the rules of the challenge were that I had to use one of their designs and something sparkly on the project, so I added bling to my flower image:

The vines on my flower got a little squished in the scanner - oops! Anyway, if you'd like to check out the freebies on Glitterbabe's blog, click HERE...cute stuff!
