Ovals at Digi Choosday

The new challenge at Digi Choosday is Think Ovals (Easter). I decided to stick with the ovals theme & used papers from the Back to Nature CD, which can be found here. There are lots of fabulous papers & elements on this CD, which has proved very popular.
I literally printed off the background paper & an element sheet & matted them onto card coloured with a Promarker & layered them up. The flowers are from stash & the sentiment is a Stamping Up stamp.
I am on holiday when this is posted, but will look for challenges as I can.

A new challenge starts today over at Digi Choosday & the theme is Anything but a Square Card. I chose to make a gift card using the gorgeous papers from the Work & Play 9 Love & Kisses CD. I chose a rose themed one & a pink stripe. The edges are using a Magnolia DooHickey die. I then used one of the embellies from the same CD & cut it out several times, each time cutting a little more, to make a decoupaged rose. The sentiment is a Paula Pascal stamp. Lastly a ribbon sleeve with a triple bow.

Papers are Dovecraft & Core'dinations Nostalgia. Die frame is Couture Spring Orchard Collection. Flowers from stash & the heart is also from stash & I have written on it. A few pearls complete the card.

There is a new challenge over at Polkadoodles today & the theme is Ribbon & Lace, a nice easy one eh?
I have used a precoloured image from the Work & Play 9 Love & Kisses CD called Princess Bride & doubled her up as I have a friend whose daughter is getting married later this year to her partner, so it fits perfectly for them.
The papers, the sentiment, the champagne bottle & glasses are all from the same CD, its jam packed full of elements for those love/marriage themes.
Ribbon from my stash, as are the flowers, so that means Thailand, for anyone reading my blog regularly.
The love birds are a Magnolia Vol 3 die club set & the charm I bought from HobbyHouse.
