Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge

Good Morning to everyone. Dull and Grey again here in London. I have been very busy this week since the children are back to school. Lots of tidying and sorting of things. I don't have much news to share so I will get on with showing you all my card.

This card is for the Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge DT. The theme this week is to use something that ties other than ribbon. So you could use string, raffia, wire, leather, wool, these are just a few suggestions.

There is a prize of 3 digi images from the Store if you win. Remember if you use a Digi Doodle Shop image you get entered twice into the draw.

Judy and Mom have been working hard on new releases so hop over and check them out and if you spend over $5 you automatically get both summer fun sets as a free gift. Also there is 15% off all Fathers Day and Vintage stamps.

I went for the clean and simple look with this one. I used this gorgeous tulips stamp available at the Store.

I coloured with watercolours and layered parts of the image to make them 3D. I then punched some holes and tied some raffia around the base of the image to make it look like it had come from the florist. I layered onto some red coredinations cardstock and stamped a heros arts sentiment directly to the card as a finishing touch. I struggle with clean and simple so I am very proud that I managed it so well.

Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate it. Hugs Pascale
