Thinking of you Dad

Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well today. CDAC has got some new challenges happening and one of them is the CDAC Progressive Challenge. Shelly, from Shelly’s Images, has supplied 2 fabulous images for the challenge and you have until March 31st to enter 1 or more projects during that time.

I decided to use only one of Shelly’s images, Angel Sentiment, for a card that I was making for my dad. Shelly gave us an incredible sentiment that was so perfect for what I wanted to do (thank you so much Shelly).  I paired up the sentiment with an image that I got from an online site called Colouring Book fun.

I got the layout from Critter Sketch. I coloured the image with my Crayola Pencil crayons and oms. The rhinestones and pearl are from my stash as well as the green ribbon (the ribbon is by Ofrey). The white flower is from SU and the brown center is cut out using my SU flower punch. The die cut underneath the flower is my Memory Box Seville Buckle (with the tips cut off).

The cs is by Bazzil, the green dp is by My Mind’s Eye and the dark brown dp is from my stash. The inside of the card has a sentiment I got from Create With TLC and I distressed it with my SU Close to Cocoa ink.

Thanks for coming and looking….hopefully you will come and check out all of the new challenges at CDAC!
Hugs ~
