All Dressed Up Challenge~ Anything Goes with an ADU image

Over at All Dressed Up Stamps, we are currently running our April 15th Challenge and we want you to join in!  It runs to May 14th and is AG with using an ADU image.

The one I chose for this event is called Strawberry Girl and can be found in the Shop here   Lol this card has had 2 revisions much to my frustration but I'm happy with the end results.  I had to fancy cut the image as the background I was creating got ruined.  So originally, her blanket would have showed up much better had I not done that.*** It just goes to show that you have to be flexible with your creations 'cause you never know when things are going to go down the tubes!  You just laugh and go on!  As I was running out of time, I used some zigzag papers chipped at the top to form "grass" and had some emergency cloud paper that was used in the background.

In the inside, I used a smaller graphic paper and a white label die cut to frame the friendship sentiment that I stamped.  Both of the sentiments were from KKS and really come in handy! 
We hope to see what YOU create for the challenge-the winner gets free images from ADU and there's tons to choose from!  Hurry on over!

Hang In There

I'm sure your home is affected, as is mine, with this Covid 19 virus that is spreading across our wonderful Country.  At the digital stamp company All Dressed Up, our artist in residence, Wendy Burns, decided to give us some uplifting images to work with for the New Release this month.  I think we all needed them!
The image I used is call "Hang in There" and can be found in the ADU Shop.  Cute little elephant floating away into the clouds, leaving all his cares behind him.  I added some cloud die cuts for dimension and added a sheer white ribbon.
On the inside, I used a
design paper with lots of birds on it--thinking
he surely is going to meet up with birds on his
journey .  I used a sentiment straight from one of my 6x6 paper pads from Carta Bella-love them!

Please check out all the other new releases on our home page-they are inspiring for sure!  We have a new Challenge that starts on the 15th and we'd love to see your creations!  You could possibly win some images from the Shop.  If you would like to see more of the projects that I create, I would be thrilled if you would follow my Blog!
