Spring Awakenings


I LOVE this Iris digital image from the Digi Doodle Shop so much I couldn't resist making another card with it!!! Today's card is for the Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #5. This week there is no sketch, colors, stash or theme which means ANYTHING GOES. That's right, anything goes so what are you waiting for... hurry on over to the Digi Doodle Shop's Best and enter your card creation for a chance to win a free digital image!

My Spring Awakenings card base is Elegant Eggplant layered with a slightly smaller piece of PTI White cardstock then Floral Tapestry: Amethyst patterned paper. Over the patterned paper I added a strip of Wild Wasabi cardstock. The Iris is a beautiful digital image from the Digi Doodle Shop. I printed the image on PTI White using my Epson Photo Printer and colored it in using copic markers.

Next I paper pierced around the edges then layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock. I wrapped Silver Metallic Ribbon around it and tied a bow in front before attaching to the card base using mounting tape. To finish off the card I added three small silver brads above the image.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
