So Happy to be on the Doodle Pantry Creative Team!

Even though this is April Fool's Day, this is no joke for me!!!  I'm so excited to have been chosen for the Summer Creative Team at Doodle Pantry~ This is a unique site with a huge library of delightful images, sentiments, and papers for MANY eclectic tastes.  I think I didn't close my mouth the whole time I was visiting the shop-Laurie does beautiful artwork and coloring.  And her perspective is spot on--funny how being married to a retired Art Teacher for so many years rubs off on you. 
We use the First of each month to "launch" the new releases but also to invite you to play along with the monthly challenge which starts at Noon Eastern time the 1st through the 24th Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 44. The challenge is "anything Digi Goes".
On to my debut card for them:  the image, papers, and sentiments all come from the set called Petite Bouquet and you get SO much in the set!  I wanted to give some dimension to the Bouquet so, I cut back the front flap of the card so that I could overhang the flowers. THEN I cut out the yellow rose, 2 red petal sections and the blue bow from a duplicate print and with small pop dots, raised them up for more dimension. A coating of Diamond Glaze over the flowers puts such a shine on them!  The purple print as well as the golden yellow paper are some of several choices of papers in the set-this color combination just sings SPRING to me!
Inside and out, I used the solid purple paper swatch to accent the Beautiful sentiments with flourishes on them.
I hope you felt a breath of Fresh spring air when you looked at my card and I hope you will return soon to see some of Laurie's other beautiful sets.
