Sending Good Thoughts -- for Jan's Digistamps Challenges

Today starts a new challenge at Jan's Digistamps Challenges.  The challenges are now monthly, but they are still anything goes, and we mean anything!  Whether you have been knitting, glass blowing, gardening, scrapbooking, cross stitching, quilting -- anything - take a picture of it and enter it in the challenge.  We'd love to see what you've been creating. Of course, we'd love to see something created with a JDS image.  There will be a gift certificate for a JDS creation, and another general draw, plus some design team favorites.

Jan has the best pre-printed images I have ever seen.  They are often way better than I could ever color them.  That was the case with the set I created with today, Bonnet Bouquet, so I used the pre-printed image for my card. 

The sentiment that I used on this card is included with the Bonnet Bouquet set. I cut the the bonnet image out, but inked the outside image with a Spectrum Noir Baby Blue Opaque inkpad.  The background paper is by We Are 3 Digital Shop. It is a piece of the Springtime papers, printed on light blue card stock. The crinkle ribbon is by D.L. Art, and was found in her Etsy Shop. I created the shaped card with dies from Crafter's Companion. 

I hope you link up your creative projects this month at Jan's Digistamps Challenges.  I'd love to see what you create, and I'd love for you to have a chance to win the gift certificates to the Jan Mahew Shop

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
D.L. Art -- May Linky Party
Word Art Wednesday -- ATG
Always Fun Challenges -- Female
Make My Monday -- Use a digital stamp -- both image and sentiment (and paper) are digital

  2. Julie, I love your card and the shape you created with those marvelous dies! Great sponging and the dp you chose for the background piece is so beautiful. Well done!
