Gardening fun at DZ Doodles

Welcome to Challenge #7 at DZ Doodles

We have another fabulous sketch by Rosalien and a gorgeous freebie you definitely won't want to miss.  It's not the one I used though!  You'll have to pop over to check it out.

Now for my card I opted to use a gardening image

I've been trying to combine the vintagey thing lately, as you know if you follow my blog.  It's not working that great but at least I'm tryin somethin new.  I used my cuttlebug to make the shapes for the central images.  The DZ Doodles image is colored with my Prisma Pencils which I matched to the DP before starting.  I added some rubons from Mariposa.  Wow those are sticky little buggers.  I had to redo it and lost half the page by not cutting out just the image I wanted.  I'll have to remember that for future.  Now that it's finished I wish I had've put the rubons on white paper to make them standout more, but oh well.  It says "Lovely" and then Birthday Wishes.  I may need to go back to my regular style.  I just have such a hard time not doing everything in counts and fine lines.  Sheesh! 

I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to those of you that have continued to follow me and comment, or email me through these last couple months.  I truly appreciate each and every one of you.  I'm almost there!

Take some time to check out what the rest of the DT have put together for you.  They are truly beautiful cards!

  4. Hi Jenn Oh it's so nice to hear from you. Yeah!!!
    Your card is gorgeous I love the layout and the image is so pretty. Your rubons look lovely no worries. I usually layout my entire card before I glue, stitch or whatever cause I've glued stuff down hated it and had to rip the whole thing apart. I hate when that happens. Have a great day sweetie.
    Hugs Bonnie
