Stamps R Us Challenge–Use A Digi!

Happy Monday everyone!  Wow didn’t those last two week go by quickly!  Time sure flies when you are having a ball.

Our challenge for this Monday is to use a digi on your card/project.  This week we are being sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads, and she will be offering a generous gift to one lucky winner.  We were very fortunate to work with some of Di’s images for this challenge, and I chose the image “Friends Forever”.

                        Forever Friends

I chose this image as soon as I saw it, isn’t it so sweet!  I hope you will check out Di’s Digi’s because she has many beautiful images to chose from!

I colored the image with Copics, and then used a Sakura Yellow Glaze pen on the ruffles, and collar of the blue dress.  I glued lace around the image to give it a framed look.  The shape of the card was cut with my brand new Grand Calibur and Grand Labels Number One.  The tag is also cut from a Spellbinder die.  The embossing folder is Diamond Trellis by Couture Creations.  Flowers are Prima and from the dollar store.  Button is by Doodlebug.  The friendship sentiment is a freebie from Create With TLC.
