It's Never Too Late -- GD for Digi Choosday

I'm super excited to be guest designing today for Digi Choosday, part of the Polkadoodles family.  I want to thank Anjie, Nikki, and the whole team for this wonderful opportunity!

This week, the theme at Digi Choosday is Embellish It.  Since I'm more of a CAS gal, I had to work this a bit.  When to stop, when you're adding embellishments?  Isn't that the question?

This Polkadoodle's image is called, appropriately, Violin Girl. She is a digital download, available immediately (ah, I love that!)
 The designer papers for this card are also from Polkadoodles.  They are Trumpet/Music Theme Craft digital download.

I colored Violin Girl with Copic markers.  I cut the Center easel card out on my Silhouette, and mounted the Trumpet/Music theme papers to the card base.  The image is cut out with a Lawn Fawn stitched circle cutting die, and a Lifestyle Crafts circle die.  

The "Never too late" sentiment on this card, also from Polkadoodles, is a freebie. Since I returned to playing the violin after quitting in the 7th grade, waiting over 25 years to start again, this quote seemed perfect for my card.

The roses on this card are from Wild Orchid Crafts, purchased through Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The twine is from Timeless Twine

I hope you join us this week at Digi Choosday for the 'Embellish It' challenge.  There's also a discount code good for 24 hours on Polkadoodle products, so take advantage and do some shopping!  There's also great prizes to be won! I'll be back next week for another Digi Choosday guest design appearance.  I am sooooo excited!
