Welcome to the SKdigis Challenge Blog Inauguration Blog Hop!
SKdigis and the wonderful Design Team invite you to join us,
as we kick off this new challenge blog with some inspiration
using the cute and creative SKdigis images.

If you've come from visiting JoAnne at JoBoogie Stamping, you're in the right place!
If you've just happened across my blog and would like to join in the fun during our
Challenge Inauguration Blog Hop, click HERE.

Each designer in the hop line up is featuring a project using one of the
many digi designs you can find in the SKdigis Shop, even some freebies!

Here's my card usin the Birdhouse image:

A2 card base - white
All other papers from my stash on scraps
Colored image in with my Copic markers
Hello sentiment from Close to my Heart stamp in black ink
The blue scallop edge from Cricut "Just Because" cartridge <Truck-s> cut at 4-1/2" trimmed
The sunflower was from "Elegant Edges", forgot which flower, cut at 2-1/2"
Finishing touches include:
Sponging sunflower ink around the Cricut cut flower
Tiny adhesive pearls added to the Cricut cut flower and the image flowers
Red grosgrain ribbon and bow
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
