Back to my creative roots ...

... like many digi-scrappers, I started out making cards. Paper scrapbooking was a natural step in my creative evolution, swiftly followed by my conversion to all things pixel, jpeg and digital! But it's good to go back sometimes, isn't it? To try your hand at crafts you've not touched for months (or even years!). When Sue Cummings announced that she was going to be hosting the Designer Spotlight Challenge over at oscraps, I jumped at the chance to go back to my roots and create a card front that you can either use digitally or printably (making up words again I know!!!)

My card design features Sue's new kit called Sketchbook Artistry (cool name, huh?) and is just a sweet way for you to say "thanks" to someone you love.




This is how it looks printed out, matted onto a pre-scored white card blank, with re-printed butterflies layered on top to add dimension ...


Now, Sue's renown for her generosity, something which often rubs off onto the member of her Creative Team (of which I'm lucky enough to be one!) and not only can you download my card as a FREEBIE, the but you can also pop by my fellow team member's blogs and download the cards that they've designed for you too!!! Check out this list ...


[EDIT: as Sue's spotlight week is now over, the above freebies are no longer available - sorry!]

Phew ... I'm exhausted now! But that's not all ... oh no ... head on over to the Designer Spotlight Challenge thread at oscraps and take part in Sue's fabulously fun challenge of designing your own card and you could win a shopping spree at Sue's shop!!!! So what are you waiting for?
