Spotlight Designer at Digital Delights!

Ya'all know how much I love to play the challenges around blog land....I just like to play, but I never expect to win anything. Last week at Delightful Challenges blog, my card not only was chosen for their Top 3, but I also won a Spotlight Guest Designer spot on the Digital Delights blog! I used the Sunflower Background digi-stamp from Digital Delights for my sample card. I have only used digital stamps a few times, but I really like the images that I can use paper-piecing with. The sunflower image was printed on several different patterns from the Basic Grey "Sugar Rush" collection, cut out and pieced together, and popped up....the only coloring on this card is on the stems and the sponged cloud background! The plaid panel was punched all of the way around with an EK Success Dotted Scallop Border Punch, the pearls are Zva Creative, the sentiment tag is K and Co, and there are several layers of "Pearl" Glimmer Mist for a shimmery finish.

Why two photos, you ask? Well....sometimes I can't decide on which view to post, so.....I posted both!!! :)

I have included the following challenges in the making of this card:
Creative Cottage: Fabulous florals;
For Fun Challenges: Happy Birthday (this is a birthday card for my friend, Beverly);
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Multiple Patterns;
Little Red Wagon: Misting....used LOTS of "Pearl" Glimmer Mist;
Craft Your Passion: Pink....I used pink pearls and pink plaid;
Creative Craft World: use a square;
Pile It On: Plaid;
Secret Crafter: Stamped Flower.

Thanks for stopping by today! Stay tuned for a new Bible Verse Thursday Challenge tomorrow! Have a very blessed day!
