CDAC's Progressive Challenge

Hey all, have I got some news for you! CDAC (Crafter's Digital Art Center) is having a Progressive Challenge! You heard right...CDAC is putting this one on and it is definitely something that you do not want to miss! All you have to do to join in, is be a member of CDAC and then join the CDAC Progressive Challenge blog. Now they do have a few rules, like you must make at least one card with at least one of the images provided, but for the first challenge you have an entire month to get it done! After that it's every 2 weeks.
For the first challenge 6 artists have donated 6 of the most wonderful images you have ever seen. I mean you really have to go over there and see what I mean. But just to give you a taste and wet your appetite, I’m going to show you one of the wonderful images and what I did with it.
Now you tell me, is she not the cutest thing you ever did see? I totally fell in love with her and that cute little dress that she’s wearing. And as soon as I saw her I knew what I was going to use her for. I had a bridal shower that I had been invited to a while back…and of course I forg0t about it. Thank heavens I got this image! Doesn’t she just look like a little bride with her flowers and pretty little dress? The image is by Whoopsie Daisy and you can get her for free, until August 29th, just by entering the challenge. But if you miss the challenge or would like to see some of her other images, you can find them here. There’s also a fabulous prize to be had…but you’ll have to go to the challenge here to find out what it is.
Just had to give you a close up view of her. I colored her dress and the blue border with metallic water color paints. The sentiment is from DeeDee's Digis.

Charlene, I agree she does look like a little bride prancing around in her pretty dress and sweet bouquet. I adore the look you've created with the metallic water colour paints on her dress, bows on her shoes and the border, so soft and shimmery. The embelishments are spot on and your bg paper is fun and pretty. I like how you did the little heart punches in the corners so that the cardstock peeks through. Beautiful card and I'm sure that your going to put a smile on the 'bride to be' face. *Hugs*

Charlene - what a beautiful card. Love the DP for the background and the colors go so well with your wonderful embellishments. Love that the little girl is still the center of attention with her shiny white dress, red hair and shoes. The person receiving it should absolutely love it!

Sue said...
