Dream Big! For Di's Digi Designs Challenge

Do you like to try new things?  Maybe work on a new skill or buy a new product and then try it out?  Well, you have your chance this week at Di's Digi Designs Challenges!  For the next 2 weeks, the theme is "Try Something New!"

It took some thought to come up with what I was going to try.  A new coloring technique?  A new product?  A new card fold?  Then, I saw a similar card to this one on a blog and had to try to figure out how they did it.  I love a challenge!

Using Ellie's Bouquet, here's my "Try Something New' card:

I'm not sure what you call this -- see through the middle?  peek-a-boo?  It's created with a piece of acrylic in the middle, where normally there would be card stock.   The next time I try this, I'll try to make the focal point smaller, but for the first time, I'm satisfied.  

I thought Ellie, with her bouquet, was a great showcase for this card.  Ellie's adorable, isn't she?  I colored Ellie's Bouquet with Copic markers.  The papers are from Paper House.  I've never used them before (another first for me), but got them in an order I placed from England.  The 'dream big' sentiment sticker was in the papers. Little Ellie has big dreams, I think, so I decided to use it. 

I hope you can join us at Di's Digi Designs Challenges these next 2 weeks for our Something New challenge.  You have a great chance of winning if you use a Di's Digi image, and there's top 3, plus a random winner.  Check out the shop for all the awesome digis and stamps, plus some really great bargain digis.
