New Challenge at MHK Designs

     Good Heaven's, it's been more than a month since I posted or created anything and I have truly missed it!  It feels so good to be back and it's wonderful to share with you my DT card for the newest challenge at  MHK Designs.  As always, we have an inspiration photo for you and you can use whatever part of it inspires you -- the colors, the photo, a combination of both -- anything at all.


     And here's my card using the Wild Rose image from the "Easter Blessings" set which was released last month.


     This is a really CAS design with the image printed directly onto the card front, then colored with ProMarkers.  I added a strip of dp and the ribbon, tied a bow, and it was finished.  Not bad for my first card in a month.  :-D

     Challenges:

     I hope you'll come and play along this month.  You could win a wonderful stamp set from MHK Designs, plus gorgeous digital papers!  Don't forget, you can join the FB group, too.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
