Card Design: DS4J & Doodle Pantry Challenges for March

Oh my.  It really hasn't been a great week for me but I will just keep plugging through and do what I can to stay positive.  Unfortunately though, I'm getting farther and farther behind in things which is so NOT good.   To help speed things along slightly, I decided to combine this month's DigiStamps4Joy Progressive Christmas Challenge along with the challenge from Doodle Pantry.

First up for the front of my card we have DS4J...
Here is the image we get to use this month:

 ...and here is my card, I hope that I haven't forgotten any details: 
General Info:
  • I went pretty CAS for this card. It is also completely digital and then printed out and assembled.

Next up, for the inside of my card we have Doodle Pantry...
Remember, Doodle Pantry challenges are unique.  If you use a Doodle Pantry image (not just a sentiment) then not only will your name be entered for a final prize coupon BUT you will also get the featured product for free.  That is pretty darn incredible!!!  Now of course, you are welcome to submit cards following the rules and theme using an image from any digital company but you will only be entered into the draw for the final prize coupon.

Check out the adorable featured product up for grabs in this month's challenge, for those who do enter using a Doodle Pantry image... 

Another great set, suitable for lots of occasions!  The great thing with these challenges is that everyone is a winner AND unlike progressive challenges where if you miss a challenge you lose the opportunity to play in future ones, the challenge at Doodle Pantry is set so that ANYONE can enter at ANY time, and still have the opportunity to earn the freebie package (following the rules of course).  

Here is the great kit I worked with for this month...
The image I used on the inside of the card is a precoloured image available in the Snowman Cheer set.  The background paper on the front and inside are also from the set.  Click HERE or also on the watermark to head to where it is available in the store.  It is currently still available for free.

Digital Sentiment: 
  • One I put together.

Digital Embellishments: 
Paper Products: 
  • Card base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
Challenges I am hoping to enter: 

Well that covers it for this one.  I've got a couple more cards I'm finishing off tonight so hopefully I'll get another post done tomorrow.  Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Until next time,

Oh wow Lisa, I just adore this monochromatic soft blue and white colouring. Its just pure magic inside and out. Thank you for taking the time to use this month’s free Christmas image. You have automatically qualified to receive next month’s Christmas image for free, which will be emailed to you at the beginning of April.

Cool card, Lisa. I am envious of your digital abilities. i am still trying to get a handle on Adobe Photoshop 12!! Love how you used a non-traditional color on your card, too!
