Saturday Card Share

Good Afternoon everyone!  I hope your Saturday is going well for you.  The weather is gorgeous here in sunny Florida.  It's not too hot today, its just pleasant.

The card I have to share with you today is for a couple of challenges.  The first one is for Just Us Girls.  It's their one year anniversary!  A big congratulations to you all!!  I love this challenge blog and have had the priviledge recently to be Chic of the Week.  I am also participating with Raise the Bar challenge.  I rarely get to play along so I wanted to be sure to get in on their F.A.L.L. challenge (Flower, At least 2 ribbons, Lots of Leaves).

I had a lot of fun with this one.  It's pretty much done digitally.  I have this great digi-paper pack that I got from A Cherry on Top.  I imported the red polka dot paper into my Word program and then imported the journal box and placed it over the paper.  Its .png format, so it's transparent.  I then imported in the image which is from CC Designs and sized it to fit inside the journal box,  Then I drew a text box for my sentiment and I drew another box that I left blank.  I then printed it, colored it and masked off the blank box so that I could stamp the leaves using a stamp also from CC Designs.  I layered it to another mat, added the ribbons and then adhered to my base.  Easy card!

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Chocolate Chip, Kraft
Paper:  Apple Festival Kit (ACOT)
Copics:  E00, E02, E29, E57, Y06, Y15, Y17, YG63, YG67, YR16, YR23, YR68
Embellishments:  Taupe grosgrain ribbon, light green satin ribbon (Offray)

I hope you enjoy my card.  Thank you so much for visiting blog today.  I hope the rest of your day is a great one.  OK, now I am off to watch Dennis the Menace with Levi.  Have fun!

Melissa, what a sweet card! I love that it is primarily digital...that's such an untapped part of the industry. It always makes me smile when people share the their process so that others can start to play around also :O)

Your coloring is fabulous and I love the digi paper you used! Thanks for the sweet comment at JUGS...I responded in the comment thread ;]

Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls ♥

Great card Miss...I love the swirl that you used to frame the card.

I don't think you need to watch the movie Dennis the Menace - you simply need to watch Levi!!
