These sweet images are digis from Digital Delights. This is my first time to use digis and they were so much fun. You can size them, emboss them, and color however you want. I used two digis - Maggie and Maggie background. Check out Wendy's digis. She has some really awesome ones. The paper is SEI and CTMH. I made this card for the Friday Sketchers challenge, Creative Card Crew challenge, Simon Says challenge and Creative Inspirations challenge.

I painted the flowers and clouds with shimmerez. The picture does not capture the shimmering of the clouds. If you click on the picture you can see her vest and hair bows are paper pieced. The dragonfly is a metal embellishments and I have added gems.

The images are colored with Copics and some are accented with shimmerez. I paper toled the images for a 3D dimension. Maggie was colored and popped up three times.

The inside is finished out with a MS punch and a stamped flower. The flower is colored with copics and accented with a Spica pen. It is popped up once.

Please let me know what you think of this card. Your comments inspire me and motivate me to contine. Please email if you have any questions.

Thank you for looking.
