Just Us Girls Go Digital

Over twelve years ago, I first started making cards using only the computer and a couple of software programs-The Print Shop and Photoshop Elements.. Then I got into stamping and began to use more elements in my cards. Lately I have begun to use more digitals images and techniques so that I am now using  the computer more in card making.

Pam at Just Us Girls challenged us to a digital challenge this week by using a digital image on your card or using digital paper for our card or do both. I used a digital image from Isabella's Sketchbook "Mary, Mary" that I colored using Photoshop Elements and added the sky background using PS. I also added a digital lace border (unknown source) and a digital sentiment from Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs.  I then printed the image and border and mounted on purple mat embossed with CB EF Swiss Dots. This was attached to a white base card. I added some glitter to the lace border, dress, bow, flowers, grass, and sentiment and added colored pearls to the lace. Not sure if you can see all the details in photo. Finished with a satin bow.
Don't forget to water your flowers.
