Guest Designer week 3 at Deedee Digis

Just sitting here wishing that the cold weather would just Go Away so I could see some pretty crocus' and daffodils popping up.  So tired of the drab winter brown, so I thought I'd make my own flowers with Deedee's Cup of Joy.  For more of her lovely digital images, check Deedee's Digi Store here.

Purples and greens are my favorite color combination ... The DP is from Paper Trey's GuideLines pack and Stampin Up is the word dp.  I'm loving this 'out of the box technique, too ... Carefully either cut around your oval (I used a Creative Memories cutting oval here) or trace & then cut, leaving the parts outside the oval to be cut with an exacto so they spill over the edges.

I added a crocheted flower from Stampin Up that I airbrushed with Copic V12 then tied on a green button with some floss.  The printed dp and green panel were both distressed before sponging with Tea Dye to give it an aged look.  I wanted to see how a whimsically drawn image and vintage techniques looked - I like it, what do you think?

Remember to check out Deedee's store for lots more digital images!
This Friday, Deedee's will be having a BLOG HOP ... Be sure to check it out here ...

Very beautiful card! I love the color combo, the wording print in the background and the way you cut out the imae. So many pretty elements. Your crocheted flower is a great touch too!
