DDLL - Thursday

Hey All My Crafty Friends

Its time to showcase another awesome digital stamp from DIGITAL DELIGHTS.  For this weeks card I used the sweet image SITTING PENNY... I love this stamp it has so many possibilities and the image screams SWEETNESS....

Everyone who knows me knows that I love my CRICUT..So for this weeks card I incorporated my cricut along with the digital image... Super funny and loved how this card turned out...

Card Base is cut from Birthday Bash @ 5 1/2 inches
Layers cut @ 5 1/2 inches & 4 3/4 inches

Sitting Penny image cut using the center point feature ( I love how this turned out...looks like I am a creative genius..but really my Cricut did all the work.. LOL )

White Signo Pen ( doodling around the card)
Pink Chalk Ink around Edges
Copic Markers
Light Blue / Green Chalk (for background)

I also BLINGED this sweet image up just a bit.... Instead of coloring the whole image with markers I used a Zig Two-Way Glue Pen and MS Fine Glitter to give her dress an little sparkle. I love the way it turned out.... Here's a close up of the GLITTERED DRESS

Please stop by and check out the sweet images over at Digital Delights... Wendy has new images in the store that are perfect for Spring and also there are several  images on sale for 50 % off this week.... WOW !!! So go by a grab them before there gone...
