Use a Digi Challenge

Gooooooooooooooood Morning lovelies, welcome to my little corner of blogland this fine Sunday!

Today's challenge at THE CRAFTY PAD is going to be VERY popular, I just know it! All we are asking this week, is that you all

** USE A DIGI  **

Yes, it really is that easy! We want to see your digi images this week, and I for one can't wait to see the wonderful array of cards you all come up with! Now, this is just a personal ask from lil' ole me, and NOT a requirement of the challenge, but it would be GREAT if you could put a link to where you got your digi from....that way, when we love what we see, we too can go shopping!!!!!! Lol!!!!

Our sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen, and she is offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher to spend in her shop.

Everyone on the DT this week used one of Debbie's delightful 'window' digis, which you can find in the TCP shop.

Such a girly, adorable image, I wanted to use some spring colours, so I chose papers from a kit I bought from Scrapbookingmad called green daisy flowerpot (unfortunately this is no longer available.) The image was coloured with Promarkers and mounted using foam pads.

I matted and layered the DPs onto yellow card, and added some grosgrain ribbon and a bow to the left hand side. I also added some pins from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The paper flower at the bottom was first attempt using the rolled spiral technique, and I was quite pleased with the result! I added gold Stickles to the centre, and cut the leaf from the same card as the matting/layering.

I added a few blooms to the top left (again from WOC,) and a ticket senti distressed with ink to complete. I thought the senti was perfect, as the little girl looks as if she's gazing out of the window daydreaming (maybe of her prince charming, or the hope of warmer Spring weather to come.....who knows!!!)

The DT made some beautiful cards this week, well let's be honest, they come up trumps every week! Don't forget to take a look when you are there to enter your card, and visit their blogs to see how they made their creations too.

I am entering my card into he following challenges:
Thanks for looking, and please leave a comment if you have time, I love to know what you think of what I've made (good or bad!!!)
