... the day belongs to You!

Happy Thursday Friends!
I just spotted the new challenge theme 'Use Digis' over on the  Back to Basics and Beyond  blog and just had to play along since I had this sweet Elizabeth Bell image half colored laying on top of my Spectrum Noir markers holder.  Good excuse to finish my coloring and create a card vs having it sit around and possibly forgotten.  
I think it came out pretty cute ... what do you think?


I used a sheet from an old Ken Oliver paper pack which has been sitting around for way too long (I have WAY TOO MUCH paper, lol) and thought would work well as an 'artsy blue sky' .  I love this Endless Creations sentiment!  I think it's advice we all need to take from time to time ... life goes by too fast!

A little prima flower with a pink Nuvo crystal drop center is all that was required as a finishing touch.

Now that I look at my card here on my post, I wish I had lined up the right side of the image with the right side of the card and moved the sentiment panel to the opposite side ... it feels 'cut off' ...  hmmm ... 

WAIT FOR IT . . .





Yep ... I just couldn't leave it alone!
With the background paper having a sheen to it, I could carefully remove the panels and reposition them.  I did have a little 'whoops' so added another coordinating flower!  LOL

We all have digi's in our stash ... why not get busy coloring and sharing what you've created over on this fun (new to me) challenge blog.  See you there!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
As always . . .

Oh, she's cute, alright! Very peaceful. Tee hee, I was reading your musings before I scrolled down. Sure enough, a re-do. I should have known. Can't leave well enough alone, but I know how these things can gnaw at you. Way to go, using up those parts!

love the finished card, she's beautifully coloured and looks wonderful against the background paper, thank you for joining in at BBB.

Darlene, this is absolutely precious. And I know all about not leaving things alone :-) But in the end, both looks are beautiful and adorable.
Hugs,
Lena

Looked great both ways but I do like the second way best. And a great save by adding another flower to the oops!

Oh that does look better in the second one, she is so cute either way but I do like the edge of the image lined up to the edge of the card, glad you were able to change it without messing up the card :)
