Card Design: Pattie's Creations Challenge #108...Green
Welcome all!  I'm here today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design ChallengeThis time around for Challenge #108, the theme is Green as the Dominant Colour.  With spring slowly making its way to many parts of the globe, green is the perfect colour to inspire the coming season to move a little bit more quickly.  It is due time for winter to say so long for another year, as far as I'm concerned. 

Here is my card, I hope that I haven't forgotten any important details:

Digital Images Details: 
  • Daffodils Circle Scroll:  The main image I've used is this pretty floral scroll.  I thought it would make a beautiful frame for a sentiment.  It is such a great image all on its own that I wanted it to be the dominant feature of the card.  You can find it in Pattie's Etsy shop by clicking on the name or watermark linked below.  I coloured the image with copic markers.
  • Butterfly 1:  When I saw this image in the store I thought it would make the perfect accompaniment to the scroll.  It can also be found in Pattie's Etsy shop by clicking on the name or watermark linked below.  As I knew that it was going to be rather small, I coloured it in digitally.  I then fussy cut it three times in three different pieces to give it some more depth.
  • Here is a closer look...
Digital Sentiment Details:
  • Birthday Set: The sweet sentiment I used on the front is from San's Designs.  She has a really great set of birthday sentiments and I was fortunate enough that I found one in the set that worked great for this card.  Clicking on the name or watermark below will take you to its location in San's store.  Right now you can grab the set for only .75 cents, reduced from $3.00.

Digital Images Details: 
  • Butterfly 1:  I also used Butterfly 1 from Pattie, on the inside too.  I thought that it would look nice on either side of the sentiment.  Details for where to find it are above.
Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • This sentiment was a freebie created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  It was the perfect accompaniment to this card.  To find more great freebies, click HERE to go to the homepage of Paulette's blog and to find great sets for sale, click HERE to go to the store.

Paper Products:
  • Card, image and sentiment base:  Michael's Recollection's cardstock, white.  
Digital Paper Products:
  • I used one of my own papers from the Flower Power kit and just recoloured it.
Challenges I am hoping to enter... 

You have until April 2nd to enter our challenge which should give you lots of time to get a Green Themed creation completed.  I really hope that you will be able to join us. Don't forget that along with all the typical rules that apply to the majority of challenges out there (please click HERE to become familiar with all the rules), you MUST USE A DIGITAL OR STAMPED IMAGE to qualify for the drawing (unless stated otherwise). We would absolutely love to see you use a Pattie's Creations (PC) image on your card, but you are allowed to use other images. If you do use a PC image, you will gain an extra entry in the draw and will have a better chance to WIN! You can enter twice per challenge and of course MUST follow all the challenge requirements that are posted for each challenge. Easy Peasy right!

Pop over to the challenge blog and check out what my fabulous teammates have offered up for inspiration.  Oh and don't forget...Pattie offers up a new freebie the first Friday of the month and it will remain up for approximately two weeks; so, be sure to pop over and check it out as well!

Until next time,

WOW! This is super... I love how you used two of my images and how you colored them. I also love your paper piecing technique on the butterfly image.

Beautiful creation Lisa! It's always awesome how you manage to use more than 1 image on the same creation! Great choice of the 2!
