Card Design: Pattie's Creations Challenge #174…Anything Goes

Hello there folks! It is hard to believe that at the end of the summer we are still having so many difficulties with the pandemic. Too many people's lives have been disrupted by this awful virus and far too many people have lost there lives! I hope that each of you is continuing to stay healthy in your own little corner of this world.

I'm popping in today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. This time around for Challenge #174, the theme is Anything Goes. Once again you can upload your projects with any kind of theme. 

In the last month I've heard of three deaths. One of my friends lost her brother due to covid-19, another friend lost her mother due to a heart attack and the third was the accidental death of a young boy only 13 years old who happened to be my best friend's nephew. More lives gone too soon. As such, I'm in need of a few sympathy cards.

General Project Info:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop). It will be printed out and assembled prior to dissemination.


 Digital Image Details: 
  • Three Daisies: This trio of daisies was the perfect lead in for my sentiment. This image can be found in Pattie's Etsy shop by clicking on the name.
  • These daisies were digitally coloured in Photoshop just to give them an open silhouette look.
Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • The sentiment used on the front was one I created way back in 2013. I offered it up for FREE as part of my 100 Followers Celebration. You can find it HERE along with some other word art freebies.

  Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • The sentiment used on the inside was also created back in 2013 for a card but never offered up for free. Maybe one of these days, I'll get around to getting it added to the blog.

Digital Paper Products:
  • The paper used as a base on the front and inside is a FREEBIE offered up during a Wonderful Wednesday event. Click HERE to find it along with some other free digital papers and a word art creation. Please note that this paper was added before I started adding zip folders so you can find the credit info for it at the bottom of the post. Also, if you grab any of the freebies previously mentioned, be sure to click on them to bring them up in the lightbox in their proper size before saving.
Digital Embellishments:
  • The base behind the sentiment and the scalloped circle were created from a template designed by Marisa Lerin, Pixel Scrapper.
  • I have applied shadow layer styles to give certain elements some depth. These styles were designed by Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.
