The East Wind Challenge 2


WOW!  Been working all day on the current Use a Digi challenge for The East Wind and am just making it in with a couple hours to spare.  I had the hardest time choosing which of her fabulous digi's to start with and had both the adorable Freebie image I received with the newsletter, and Aurora Poppy colored, thinking I could do both, but of course that was not to be.  Aurora Poppy won out because I was dying to use this DP by BoBunny and a never used Poppy Die by Spellbinders.  I created a window straight through the card with Aurora peeking out.  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the sentiment is computer generated.

And don't faint, I actually finished the inside.  Go ME!  She's colored with Copics and I used the scraps from the DP mat on front to help finish it off. Another MS butterfly and an ancient photo corner die as well. 

I'm also entering this in the Quirky Crafts Secret Garden Challenge, the Left of Center Die Cuts Challenge, Through the Purple Haze Anything Digital, Naughty or Nice Birthday Challenge (I can't believe I went with "Nice".  Still thinkin' on "Naughty"), the ABC Challenge "G" is for Girls, and the Fussy and Fancy Birthday Challenge, Digi Stamps4Joy Add a Birthday Sentiment and the LOC 1st Anniversary ATG challenge.

  7. Donna, I love every detail of this card. Your colouring is amazing as always. The cut-out window is so perfect for this image...like we have uncovered her secret and she's startled. The poppy die cuts over the opening are a delight and add to the mystery as well as making a cool looking aperture. Gorgeous paper and butterflies...wow! Thanks for the inspiration.
