Digital Tuesday Challenge 'A Card for Mum'

Hello and welcome to another Digital Tuesday Challenge. This week's challenge is to make a card for your 'mum'. Our sponsor this week is the Fabulous Dustin Pike and he is giving away three digital images to one lucky randomly chosen winner!

To make my card, I used one of Dustin's freebies on his blog. I just love this sweet elephant! I don't have a 'mum' so I made a card that was appropriate to give to a mother, but I generalized it so I could give it to anyone. The inside of the card reads 'How much I love You', it is computer generated. The designer paper and ribbon are from JoAnn's. I embossed the center panel with the Cuttlebug Hearts Embossing Folder. The button is from Making Memories. I put the main image panel up on dimensionals. To get the pink highlight around the sentiment, I first colored the embossed section with a marker, then I went over that with a blender pen to remove some of the ink. Here is a close up of the image. There are Stickles on the heart and the image is colored with Copic Markers.

Have a great day! Amy
