The Best Part of Me Is You

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week! I've had a cold since this weekend--ugh. Fortunately, no one else in the family is sick.

I'm up on the Glitz  blog today for the One Buck Wednesday at Jessica Sprague. We're showcasing the Finnley digital kit, and which is on sale for today only.

I went with a freestyle/collage approach with this hybrid card:

I had my daughter in mind when I made the card, and I wanted to keep it light and girly.

There was quite a bit of digi work on this card. First, I took the arrow washi tape in the Finnley Element 1 kit, lowered the opacity, and then duplicated the layer. A lot. I ended up with a background paper. Here's what it looked like after printing:

I did a few more steps in Photoshop. I used the digital brushes in the Elements 1 pack to stamp a feather in pink. I also clipped one of the red gradient papers in the Finnley Paper Pack to the deer journaling card to make the sentiment pink/red.

When I printed and fussy cut the elements, I gathered them together:

After I took this photo, I spritzed the doily with pink spray mist. I layered the elements and stitched through the top. Here's a look at the top portion:

And here's a close-up of the bottom clustering with the awesome Finnley Giant Rhinestone:

I'm entering the card in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge using Heather's sketch:
