DDC #9 Thinking Of You

Good Morning! Here we are with a new week and a new challenge!
We have a sponsor this week and it is Floppy Latte Designs. They
generously gave the DT a few images to work with
(THANK YOU!!) and I chose this one:
 "Three Butterflies"
 I colored it up with prisma colored pencils, then cut it out with
 Round scalloped spellbinders. The DP I used on this one is from
 DCWV "the Blossoms & Butterflies stack" I found this really cool Sketch
 but their challenge has ended, but I still wanted to do this one!
I added a butterfly by K &Co and some pearls that I got from Michaels

and Next i have for you my Digi Darla image....

this image "Rose of The Tropics" by Digi Darla, is sooo pretty, it was a New release last week! 
 I really love how this card came out! did some scalloped stiching at the bottom, and added a mini flower brad to the top of each scallop, Layered my image with spellbinders die and, I added a Martha Stewart Butterfly.

If you are interested in getting the NEW releases from Digi Darla's as
soon as they come out, consider a membership to the DSC and become
 a Savvy Sister, we would love to have you!!

I also have to share this photo I took of one of the roses in my yard,
I did not realize till I was looking at photos on the computer that I took that there
was a dew drop on the Rose...
I love spring time!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
God Bless

Welcome Back!
the DP is by Sassafras, and was given to me from Lisa, she was given
lots of goodies from a friend of ours and shared some with me! Thanks Lisa ((HUGGS))!
So back to my card...I needed a little mojo and decided to search the net to see
what I could find.
