Card Design: Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge...April
Before I get on with today's post I just wanted to say a big thanks for all the birthday wishes for my husband yesterday.  I know that he will greatly appreciate them!

I had a little bit of time this afternoon before we head out and see my folks so I thought that it would be the perfect opportunity to post my creation for the Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge. So many adorable images to choose from, and as usual, this month's image for the progressive challenge is no exception.  Check it out...

Everyone who played along in last month's challenge received Coffee Girl for free. If you decide to hop on and play along in the Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge, then you can purchase this digital by clicking HERE (or on the watermark above to head to its location in the store). This way you'll receive next month's digital stamp for free.

Here are my card and details...

General Info:
  • When leaving comments as part of my Scribbles Designs duties I found a card layout that really inspired me.  The original card was designed by maikreations and you can find the card that inspired me HERE.    

Digital Image Details: 
  • Coffee Girl:  You can find this image in the store.  Details above.  This image was coloured in and grounded with Copic Markers.  I used coloured pencils to add the actual ground.  Sadly the underlying black ink smudged a bit when colouring her face and boy do I really need to learn how to colour hair properly.
  • I created a tag shape in Libre Office Draw and then added some digital stitching around the edges.  I layered the image onto the tag before printing it.
  • Both the ribbon and the fabric hearts are Crafts brand and were purchased at Dollarama.

Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • This great sentiment was created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  I picked it up as a freebie a while back.  For more great freebies, click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and to purchase some wonderful sets, click HERE to go to the store.

Paper Products: 
  • Card base and matting:  Crafts Brand Cardstock, purchased at Dollarama.
  • Image and sentiment bases: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • Designer paper is from the K & C Company Designer Paper--Best of...florals collection.

Well guys, that is it for this one.  It is another night out of the house visiting with my parents at their hotel.  I'll try and post again in the next day or two as I still have lots to accomplish before the end of the month.  

Until next time,
