Crafty Monday

I want to show you a card I made for my Twitter friend Dreena's color (or colour, as she writes it) challenge called Curry Chicken. Go over to Prairie Papercrafts and Stamps if you'd like to read Dreena's challenge post.

All she really asks is that designers use Real Red, Night of Navy, Crushed Curry, and Whisper White. These vibrant colors from Stampin' Up! are some of my favorites, although it's asking a lot of me to require four colors. I like two colors and maybe a teeny bit of a third accent color. So, I decided to stretch myself. That's always good.

I kept with Dreena's nautical suggestion--at least in spirit--and gave it my own Victorian turn, as always.

This is the first challenge in which I've participated. I used MyDigitalStudio to design this card. I've just begun to be able to do a lot of the things I wanted the software to do. I like using it to make a collage of images and paper patterns. Click on the image above to see a much larger version.

You can see that the image needs some glitter. That's something My Digital Studio needs badly. I will definitely glitter the cards I print.

One more thing. It's Lisa's birthday and she's giving stuff away on her blog, Papergrace Designs. You might want to check it out, if you like papercrafts. And you probably wouldn't put up with me if you didn't.

Happy birthday, Lisa, one of the sweetest chicks on Twitter.
