Mother Nature's Baby

     This is the third card I've done in the CDAC Progressive Challenge, where the images are supplied free to those who are participating in the challenge.  This image is by Nana Vic's.  Isn't it adorable?  It feels almost magical.


I used a sketch I found at Sweet Sunday.


     I used Promarkers to color the image and have discovered that green and brown is fast becoming another favorite color combo.   The image is die cut and then stippled with Walnut Stain distress ink.  The brown lattice ribbon, originally white, was also stained with that same ink.  The polka dot dp is digital paper from a set by Doodle Pantry.  It was a scrap I packed with my supplies and it was perfect for this card.

     Challenges:
Art Impressions -- Layer it up
Bearly Mine -- Digital image and paper
Crafting by designs -- Anything goes
Creative Moments -- Spring
Everybody Art Challenge -- 2 colors (green and brown)
LEJ Designs -- Mystical, magical, mysterious
Memory Nest Whimsical Weds. -- Anything whimsical
Moving Along with the Times -- Baby
Outlawz Paper ala Mode -- Anything goes
Scrappy Frogs -- Think Spring
Sugar Creek Hollow -- Baby face
That Craft Place -- For a child

     All right, I'm posting this and then starting for home.  I doubt that I'll get much internet time until I'm back in my own surroundings later this afternoon, but I do have a couple of things to post for next week and I might even get something done over the weekend.  See you later.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
