OSAAT DT Card - Challenge # 212 - Use A Digi

Good morning to all my friends and fellow bloggers.  My cards are like buses - you wait for ages then two come along one after the other!

Once again it's time for another challenge at One Stitch At a Time  .
My Card

The digi I was given to work with is "Pillow Talk" from Stitchy Stamps.  Now a naked lady hugging a pillow is sooo out of my comfort zone, so I kind of fudged the issue.  I chose to interpret the expression on her face as dreamy and romantic rather than sexy and I took it from there.  I coloured the image with Promarkers, fussy cut it (not very well!) and then superimposed it onto the digi of a chair I found on t'internet.

My card is 6" x 6"  I matted a very old piece of  lavender paper onto the base card and then used Cuttlebug "Matelasse" embossing folder on a piece of purple pearl card.  Both pieces from my bits box. The flowers are Cheery Lynn large, medium and small roses but I have made them to look more like daisies with a gemstone in the centres.  The leaves are also  Cheery Lynn Wreath Strip. A piece of lace and ribbon from my stash were added.  I computer generated the sentiment and diecut using SB Scalloped Circles.

We would love it if you could join us in this weeks challenge.  The theme is Use A Digi and if you use an image from our sponsor you could win seven digi images. So what are you waiting for?

    Your link worked fine honey, Mr Linky can look as if he hasn't accepted a link, I think he take his time! Just wait a few seconds and then refresh the page, sometimes more than once.
