August Progressive Challenge at Deedee's Digis

     Good morning, everyone.  Today I'm sharing a card I made using the Digi of the Month set from Deedee's Digis for August.  It's called "Monkey Business" and you can see the full set at the end of this post.  BUT, we have some additional fun and exciting news this month since we're celebrating the 1st Anniversary of Deedee's being back in business.  So there are a couple of treats (or twists, as Deedee calls them!) to the normal progressive Digi of the Month challenge.  First, let me show you my card and then I'll fill in the details.

     I used a pre-colored image and added my own sentiment.  I cut the image with a large, plain, square die and then used a punch on the corners.  I matted it with aqua CS and rounded the corners.  That entire piece was layered onto the card front and I added the hand tied bow.  The sentiment was computer generated and corner punched, then added to the card.  Another nice CAS design.

     OK, here's the exciting news -- in honor of celebrating the first year back in business, Deedee has a couple of twists for those of you who haven't played regularly in the DOM Challenges each month and for those of you who do.

     Twist #1 -- FREE-FOR-ALL!
This month is a FREE-FOR-ALL challenge!  As you can see, the featured set is "Monkey Business," and while last month's players received the whole set, we're offering the dingle monkey image from the set to anyone else who would like to join in.  When you make and link up a project using our Digi of the Month, you get the next month's featured set for free!  This is a great chance to join in and start collecting new, FREE digis each month!   To download the freebie from the set for this month only,  go to the Deedee's Digi challenge blog here and download it from there.

Twist #2 -- PRIZES!
Each Monday throughout this challenge, we will select one winner by random draw from our challenge participants to-date.  The winner of each weekly draw will receive their choice of any one digi set from our shop.  (Limit: one weekly win per challenge participant. All participants up to the date of each drawing will be included, unless they have already won.)  Then, at the end of the month, we will choose one Grand Prize winner who will receive their choice of any five digi sets from our shop.  All participants from throughout the month, including our weekly winners, will be entered for the Grand Prize draw.  You can enter more than once, but each entry must be a separate share on your blog or gallery, please, and it must use a Deedee's Digi.

So you see, there are lots of reasons to play along this month!!!
