Deedee's Digis April Digi of the Month


Hello and a very happy Monday to you. Deedee's digis has released the new digi of the month called "Blooming Blessings" and if you played along with last month's challenge, you'll receive this digi absolutely free! 
With Mother's Day not too far off, I decided to use the flower image with the bold sentiment. I used the line drawing and colored this myself with Copics, adding some large black pearls to the flower centers. To add a little interest, I drew black lines around the outside edges, then matted with black. I embossed the background with a Darice basketweave embossing folder and this card was done!
If you aren't familiar with Deedee's progressive challenge, click here for the details. If you didn't play along last month, you can still get this beautiful digi set for a reduced price during April, so why not come play along with us?

                               

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week ahead!

Carol

This is really lovely, you have coloured the flowers so prettily. I like the effect of the drawn lines around the edge and the black mat and embossed card compliment it all beautifully.
