Flowers For You "The Next Level" Challenge DT Card


Hello and thanks for dropping by!
I did this card for my first DT example card for "The Next Level". I am so honored that they chose me to be on their charter design team! Please pop over and check out the challenge. I hope you will join us. They are asking that you make a card with a ribbon boarder. This was the first time I have tried it and I like it! They have a tutorial link so you can learn too!
For my card I used "Fred She Said" (Polka Dotty Flowers - Fred's Flowers v1 Edition B) and (Viney Flourish 1) as my focal point. I DT for them too! ;) Tracey has some pretty digi stamps! You can check them out HERE.
The papers are "Bazzill Dots, and "core'dinations".

If you scroll down to the next post you will see a tutorial on sewing on cards that I did up for Ann and Dawn @ "The Next Level" while I was making this card. Hope you find it helpful!
Remember, you can always click on my pictures to see enlarged detail.





Please leave a comment and let me know what you think about my DT card.

Have a good one!
Hugs!
