Not only is this an adorable Digital Doodle set by Designed2Delight that can be used on a card for almost anything or anyone, it also makes me sing! "Oh Happy Day... when Jesus washed my sins away..." Having just celebrated Easter - Resurrection Sunday - I am again humbled at the sacrifice Jesus made by dying on the cross to take our sins and sickness away. Now relate that to Spring - new birth, new growth, sunshine (Son-shine), flowers and cute critters coming back out of hibernation for an overall feeling of JOY.
I wanted this card to depict the vibrancy of Spring. Though I was tempted to use my favorite color orange, I refrained this time and came up with another purple theme that my daughter Christy would love. The butterflies were the driving force since I do not have any frogs digital or on paper (hint hint to the digital designers!). I colored the butterflies pink and purple since I had the digital paper that I printed out. The secondary paper had purple and blue and the sky in the image is blue, so I added the dual color ribbon to tie in the blue and purple (glittery butterfly) buttons and added a purple ribbon bow. I wanted to add another paper so the card would fit into another challenge but I just could not figure anything into the card layout that would work without making the card way to busy to enjoy. Overall, I'm happy with the card and I printed quite a few of this digi to use on more cards which I will add to this blog post when done.
I want everyone to be able to go get this digi, so I have a few links to the blog. What I love Love LOVE is that you can buy this and use it for the next challenge and get the next weeks digi free just for participation in the challenge! Free digi stamp every week, how could you pass that up? I also just found another blog that gives digis away just for following, commenting on their blog and yours - Digi Stamp Boutique - and there is one day left for the April give away so don't waste any time!
This card would have been entered in a few challenges, but due to the nasty storms and power outtage, I could not post it until now which is too late to enter in D2D and some others. I still hope it can be enjoyed for viewing and that I might find somewhere to enter it.
Many Blessings today!! Deborah
