My First Digi Card!

I wasn't sure I was going to like digital images....but I ran across Fred She Said....The Store, and fell in love with her images! These were freebies...and what better way to try them out than to create with her beautiful freebies?!

The images come in a set, and this one is called Pink & Mellow. I used Copic Spica Glitter Pens to bling up the images. I used pink on the pink, lemon on the yellow and orange on the yellow for my flowes. My leaves were blinged up with the olive glitter pen.

I folded the images a bit to add some dimensional interest. To do this I simply used my craft knife on a thick foam pad to *score* the lines and then used my fingers to gently squeeze my folds in.

Other items used:
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder (www.embellish-online.com)
SU! Photo Corner Punches
Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder (www.therubbercafe.com)
Hero Arts Stamp
Adhesive Pearls
Piercing Tool/Signo White Gel Pen
Fiber/Scalloped Circle (Archiver's)
