Another Digital Play

I am loving using the sets in the My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up! This is another digital card made using one of the sets that will be available starting May 1. This set is called Fabulous Florets and it is amazingly versatile. I think there is even a coordinating paper that comes in the mini catalog if you order the set, but since I was being lazy and didn't want to get up to go find it, I just chose to use my own selection of colors. I started with a background of Pacific Point and then matted whisper white on top and then added my images using old olive, Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze and a color that is close to Daffodil Delight. I faded the opacity on the two large flowers in the background to give them a softer look. I grabbed some grosgrain ribbon and a couple buttons and added those and then created the scallop oval matting and picked out a font for my type and typed the sentiment. I added another texture stamp and tried to make it Baja Breeze, but it still looks black to me - but I still like the finished affect.
The challenge on the SU Only challenge blog this week is to make Mother's Day cards - so this one fits the challenge perfectly. Now I simply have to take this image to the printers (I don't have a color printer at home) and print it out on cardstock and then add my own personal sentiments to the inside and send it off to my mom. Of course, I COULD order the stamp set too and then I can just stamp it out, using this design as my sample card. I am REALLY enjoying the few projects I have had time to make using My Digital Studio and the cost is SO enticing. You might want to just check it out for yourself. The program is easy to use and comes with many different items to start with. The downloads are within any stampers budget too and the quality is the same that you get with any of Stampin' Up's products.
Anyway - I have to work tonight - so this is all I get to do in the way of being creative. I hope you have enjoyed visiting the spa today and seeing the digital work that I have done. Do come back soon for more creative inspiration.

Gorgeous card! You should enter it into the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge for this week. They're doing a Mother's Day theme too.
