Flower in Vase - 'Thanks so much' Card

Give THANKS to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
I Chronicles 16 : 34

Welcome to Digi Desserts Fridaze in connection with My Paper Crafting !    We, on the Design Team, are to create a project using a Digital File from the vast selection at every Friday, share them with You and encourage You to visit over there, get the FREE Digi File for today, make a project with it and link it for all to see.  The ‘winning’ designer is highlighted next week as a Guest Designer!   It’s an easy and fun thing to do on the weekend! 

For this week’s project I used the Free File offered 2 weeks ago on the TotallyTags and ATCs post on MyPaperCrafting.  There are usually Vintage Digi Files offered on Thursdays and I just LOVE using them on my projects and giving them ‘An Elegant Touch…’!  There are usually several ‘color options’ in each file, allowing for a vast amount of creativity along that line and sometimes I also put them in my FREE “Perfect Effects Free” program which offers even more color shading availability.  This time I used one that Melin had offered – in which she changed the original bright colors to a ‘coolwash’ and subdued jewel tones.  I used it last week, also, having printed it on photo paper which produced a bright, clear picture.  This time I printed it on white, cardstock which gave it a soft, muted effect.  I made a totally  different card.

I ripped cardstock in coordinating colors to use as mats.  I adhered them each with foam pads to make each layer raised from the one underneath.  I punched the edge of a white cardstock card.  I adhered a piece of olive green cardstock underneath the punched edge.   I stamped the sentiment ('Thanks so much') in olive green ink.  I added golden yellow gems to the flower centers in the punched edge.

Here is the file I used -        

Be sure to visit Melin at MPC and sign up for her blog and Newsletters, join us on the Blog Hops at various times of the year and check there weekly to see what’s offered in her Store!  She offers Amazing Digi and Cutting Files and I’m SURE that you will find lovely items to enhance your paper-crafting projects!  As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about what or how I have done on here -  Happy Crafting!  ;-}
Here is the FREE digi-file for this week at My Paper Crafting.  Be sure to stop over there, if you haven’t already, see all of the other creative projects, get the file, make a project of your own using a digi-file from My Paper Crafting and then link it there so we can see it, too!

We invite YOU to participate in our Digi Dessert Fridaze weekly posts.  Spring is a time of "new beginnings" and we love to see things "take root, blossom and grow”, we decided it was a good time to announce some changes to our Challenges and Link Ups.  Here is the link to Melin’s explanation of how things will work now.  Be sure to pop over there and be included in the creative fun! 

Be sure to come back here often as I showcase other Paper Crafted Projects and Photo Digital Restorations that I make – several days each week.  Sign up to receive my Posts so you’ll know when I’ve posted something – usually 3 to 4 times weekly.  Tuesdays every other week are Cutting files from MPC – Thursdays are Tags and ATCs – Fridays are Digi Files from MPC -  Other days may be other projects!

  6. Lynden this is a beautiful card. I like that you took different color cardstock and ripped it to create the mats and I like the die cut edge. Very pretty!
