First project for World Wide Open Design Team

I am so excited to finally be able to share with you that I was chosen to be a member of the Design Team at World Wide Open Design Team challenge blog. You have to be a member of at least one design team to be able to enter their challenges and so the projects entered are amazing. 

Another exciting aspect here is that Julia Spiri is the artist that sponsors the challenges and her digis are lovely - a whimsy sort of fantasy. There are various prize categories and certificates awarded so if you are on any design team, be sure to check the challenges out.

So here is my first project.

I used Julia's digi called Girl with Teddy. I printed her onto Strathmore Colored Pencil paper and colored her with my Prismacolor pencils. I cut her out with a label die from my stash and adhered her to a patterned paper card panel which I in turn adhered to a 5.5x5.5 cardbase.

I cut the heart die cut out twice, once from green cardstock and once from yellow glitter cardstock and arranged it with both heart colors onto the card panel - some behind and some on the focal image label. I cut the sentiment from blue cardstock and fun foam and adhered them together before adhering them to my card.

I look forward to seeing your entry over at World Wide Open Design Team challenge blog.
