Exciting crafting news! 1st DT inspiration card creation for Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges Blog is posted today for 1/3/18-1/9/18. Yea!!!

There are 2 sponsors and the one selected for me to spotlight was Polkadoodles. I used their girl with crocus basket digital image in black and white. is the link to their online store. You can also find them on Facebook. The prize is still TBA.

a. Neon pink cardstock base (Astrobrights by Neenah Paper, Inc.)
b. chocolate brown cardstock scrap (Colorbok)
c. 3 patterned designer papers (The Paper Studio by Hobby Lobby)
d. digital image of girl with crocuses (Polkadoodles)
e. papers and base edges are inked in green (Horizon Group)
f. staples, glue dots, and glue stick for adhesives
g. Easter sentiments 

close up view of the beauty; I colored her to have hazel green eyes and colored the leaf base of her hat and her shoes to match.

I chose to do the front panel off-set/lowered and did a scalloped edge on the pink paisley paper to be off-set/above to provide visual interest.

The inside panel sentiment was lightly colored with green colored pencil to help unify it with colors on the front. I love how this card came together.
