CD Sunday Plus Challenge Time!

 Happy Sunday, hope all is well with you.
Time for Challenge #131 at CD Sunday Plus and I am hosting this go around.
The challenge is fortnightly beginning every other Sunday and ending the Saturday before the next challenge.
You must use a CD, USB or Digital image somewhere on your make, which must be a physical creation. And please tell us the image source. Complete rules are listed on the challenge blog sidebar.

And here is my inspiration make, using a Gecko Galz digital image from the Ode to Spring Craft Kit as my focal point for this Spring card.

I chose this Splitcoaststampers sketch for my A2 layout design.

On the back of the card I used a piece of DCWV dp and a stamped, heat-embossed and punched siggie.
Inside the card I stamped Clearly Besotted sentiments with Versafine Clair ink.

Close-up to show the heat embossed Clear Dollar sentiment and little Stickled flower center dots.
I cut the sentiment with a circle die and green card, then matted it on white card cut with a zig zag seal die. I used a lattice die cut with white card and wildflower and tropical flower dies cut with blue and white card scraps. So, multiple dies used on the lefthand side of the card. The lavender base layer was edge-distressed with a tool.

Final view.

I like both, but a good floral image in cool colors like the one I've used delights me.

Your card is a lovely ode to spring! The Gecko Galz digital image brings such vibrancy to the design, and I admire how you've incorporated multiple dies for texture and depth. The attention to detail, from the heat-embossed sentiment to the Stickled flower center dots, truly elevates the overall presentation.

Lisa said...

What a thoughtful birthday card for Honey! The cooking theme is perfect, and the use of clipart from The Art Design adds such charm to the design. The layering and attention to detail, from the QuicKutz photo corner die cuts to the stamped sentiments, make this card truly special. Happy 72nd birthday to Honey!
