CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge

Here is the card I am entering in the Crafter's Digital Art Center (CDAC) Freebie Challenge. We were provided  digital images and are challenged to come up with a chard using one or more of the images provided. The image I chose was provided by, Happy Scrappin Doodles. There are lots of beautiful images there, so go check it out.

To make my card, I first started off with a piece of white card stock, 8.5"x 5.5 ", folded in half, then I added a 5.5" x 4" piece of patterned paper, from the DCWV Pocket Full of Posies 8x8 pack, for my card front. I printed out my image on white card stock, then I used Copic markers to color the image. I wanted to use one of the Spellbinder dies that I have, so I decided to cut out my colored image, then with some shimmery green paper that I had, I cut out a mat using the largest Beaded Ovals Nestabilities Die. I attached the Oval in the middle of the card first, then attached my image on top of the Oval. 

I wanted a sentiment, so I looked through my collection of clear stamps, and found the one I thought would work well. Using a red ink pad to ink up my stamp, I placed my sentiment on the lower right corner of my patterned paper. 

I thought my card needed something else, like maybe a bow, so I just happened to have a piece of orange ribbon sitting on my table, so I decided that would be good for my bow, which I made using my Bow-Easy. I then attached my bow to the upper left corner of my card.

Thanks for taking a look, and if you have the time, please leave me a comment, and let me know what you think.
