Card Design: From the Heart Stamps April Challenge

Hello everyone!  Goodness, with how sick I was during the first half of April, I was really worried I wouldn't get my progressive cards done this month along with a set of papers for a challenge I'm sponsoring.  Although I've had to stay up until midnight every night for the last week, at least I managed to get my progressive cards done!  The first one is for the From the Heart Stamps (FTHS) progressive stamp of the month challenge.
In order to enter the FTHS progressive challenge, you must either have received the latest image by having participated in the previous month or you can buy the stamp for the current month's challenge.  Everyone who enters and follows the rules is a winner because you automatically get the stamp for the next month's challenge.  Stop by the site and check out the rules for yourself.  While you are there, have a look around.  They have some really awesome images.

General Info: 
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a poster mockup (courtesy of Design Bolts).  I will print it out and assemble it a later date.

Digital Image Details: 
  • The image on the front, Time to Bloom, is available for purchase over at From the Heart Stamps. Click on the title or on the watermark below to go to its location in the store.
  • If you missed out, you can still play along with the challenge by purchasing the image. Then you can enter the challenge and receive next month’s digi free. Alternatively, if you spend $10 in the From The Heart Stamps store this month, you'll receive the image for free.  To find the special code you need, be sure to check out the original post by clicking HERE.
  • This image was coloured digitally.

Digital Paper Products:
  • I used a digital paper from my A Matter of Time mini pack.
