First Card as a Digi Darla Design Team Member

Welcome, welcome, welcome.  Thanks for stopping by to visit.  I sure enjoy it.  I wish I could sit down on the porch and have a glass of ice cold tea with y'all, but since I can't, I can only show off some of my work.

This card is my first entry as a Digi Darla new design team member.  I am so thrilled to have been picked.  I look forward to getting to know all my teamies and seeing all the beautiful creations that are posted each week by the design team as well as the ladies who enter the challenges.  The challenge this week is #47, Winter Blues.  I chose, of course, a Digi Darla image called Haley's Hat.  I think she is pretty snazzy.

I started with a dark blue card stock from Colorbok for the card base.  I followed a Mojo Monday sketch from back in September of last year.  I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities to die cut the three circles and layered them behind the image.  The image is colored with colored pencils and OMS.  I used a Midnight Blue from Colorbok for the vertical strip which I matted on white card stock (GP) after running it through a Sixxix Embossing Folder..  I added the image and then a strip of medium blue matted on white and banner cut, run  through a Tim Holtz embossing folder,  on pop dots to hold the sentiment.  The sentiment is from a stamp set by TCP.  I inked the edges of the image and the sentiment with DI Vintage Photo just to help it pop out a little bit.  Adding five gems from Queen and Co. finished off the card.

Thanks again for stoppin' in to visit me today as I cruise along on my highway of creativity.  God bless y'all.
