A New Challenge with Digi Makeover

Coffee of the Day - Toasted Almond

Happy Monday to you! Today starts a fun new challenge over at the Digi Makeover Challenge blog. We are being asked to create our own background paper using digital images. I had never really done this much before, so I had a great time trying it out. just remember to use a digital image when you play along. The winner will get to choose any 3 digi images from PMS as their prize. If the winner used a PMS image on their entry, they'll get 2 bonus images (for a total of 5!)

Now on to my card.....

I used images from several different sets to create my project. I did also mix in a little bit of designer paper, too, using Nook & Pantry papers from Basic Grey. I like to print out my digis onto patterned paper when I can since I don't have any colored ink in my printer right now. it helps add a bit more dimension to the bg imo. The rolling pin and mixing bowl come from the set, 'Guilty Pleasures.' The cookie comes from the set, 'So Sweet.' The senti is from the newly released, 'Handmade.' and isn't this little monster adorable? His name is Duncan. I created a little zipper flower embellie using a vintage zipper I picked up at an antique store and an old button. I love making these! it just seemed the perfect little touch with this fun monster. :)

I hope you will try this fun technique and play along with us! please stop by the challenge blog to see the fantastic samples created by the DT.

I'll be back later with the winners of my blog candy. :)
