Spring Greens

Good Morning all!
So sorry I'm a bit late but this post was scheduled but Mr Blogger decided to play games again!!!!
Happy Wednesday to you all!
It's time for a new challenge over at 
This week we have a Colour Challenge for you!
Here's my card.

Here's the inspiration photo

We'd like to see some Springtime Hues on your projects!

I made a centre step card using the image
The person this card is destined for loves his bed but,
 I'm guessing he might be a little more keen than normal 
to get up on his birthday! lol

I used a downloadable template for the card design as you can 
 add in digital papers using your graphics programme for the 
matting & layering, without having lot's of waste.
Saves on printer ink too!
(Green in more ways that one!)

I've blotted out the birthday boys name just in case he sees it!

The papers I've used were a digital freebie from here & are called 
Green Spring 
The font I have used is Wacky Action BTN & is free, from here

I coloured Carl with my promarkers & inked around a lot of the edges
with a green & a yellow inkpad. I added a button which 
I threaded with a bit of cord, which made me think of the 
pyjama cords you used to get.
The only other embellishments I've used are some bits of Card Candi.

Thank you for sparing the time to drop in,I hope you like my card!
I also hope you can join in this weeks challenge.

  13. Fantastic step card, Dawn! I love the way you did the papers. I don't have a program that lets me do digital cards but this one is wonderful. OK, I'm going to try to get something done for the color challenge this week. After all, since I'm Irish and born on St. Paddy's Day, how could I NOT do a challenge to use green? Love the idea of a color challenge! Tell everyone at DTD it's a great idea.

  14. Oh, No, ... I forgot to wear my Just Inspirational Challenges DT hat when I commented! Oh, well, you know I love it whether I was wearing the hat or not, right? Hugz.

  15. Dawn: We're so glad you entered Card Cupids' March Challenge, Boy's Birthday--your card is so cute--love your funny image--you captured the required colors perfectly!

    We hope you'll consider donating one of your creations to Card Cupids. We will send it to a little boy celebrating his birthday at the temporary homeless shelter we support.

    Thank you again for entering.
