"Fred She Said" Freebie digi Challenge!!! Come join us!!!!

Glad you dropped by!
Tracey (Fred) Lynn Miller of "Fred She Said" has drawn up a darling little flowerpot she is giving away to celebrate a bunch of new releases. In conjunction, she is having a challenge with that digi. All of us girls on the design team will be picking the winner. The prize you ask...ALL of the new releases plus a $20 gift certificate!
Awesome prize huh?!?
All you have to do is go HERE, get your free digi, make a card, post to your blog and link it to the challenge blog.
The deadline is next Monday July 27th Midnight ( EDT)

Here is my card that I made with the digi.
Of course I am not eligible for the awesome prizes, but I still wanted to play along!
The digi is just too cute not to!

I popped the the image several times for a 3D look and glossed the leaves with Crystal Effects.
Remember, you can click on the pictures for a closer look.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations #18– “Distressing”
I used “Tim Holtz” Distressing inks on and around the edges of the papers.
Dutch Dare #56- “Use Cutting Dies or Punches”
I used 2 of my scalloped oval Nesties.

I just love my sewing machine! The leaf stitch works really well with this image.

Thanks again for dropping by!
Please be a sweetheart and leave a comment! ;)

Wow, you did a spectacular job on this card, True. The colors are so rich and beautiful and the way you have colored and blinged up the image is really terrific. I printed out the digi and keep looking at it and trying to figure out how to present it on a card. Thanks for the inspiration in using this image!!!

*sigh* Oh noes True, here I was, thinking you'd at least have an old and scrubby sewing machine for your card pleasures, but oh no, you gotta have one of those fancy ones with cool stitches! Blah.

Thank goodness you are not eligible! Ack! I'd never have any hopes of winning anything with you around. Girl I want to know how you get your stitch lines so straight. When I try, my machine becomes like a crocodile and starts munching its way all around the paper LOL My DH says that it is quite comical to listen to talk to myself and the machine from the other room. LOL HELP!! Love this card - wanna make one just like it!
