For this week's challenge, we were given a choice of from several "plates" from Whoopsie Daisy Digis. I chose #1 from plate #504 , , , a little girl sitting and looking into the distance.    Here's how my card turned out:

digi image (#504) from Whoopsie Daisy Digis
Summer Joy 04, 07 & 08)
flowers from Petaloo
misc. gems

When I first saw the digi paper "Summer Joy"  by Graciellie Designs, I fell in love with it and knew I wanted to use it with my dig image from Whoopsie Daisy Digis.  It is such a soft yellow and creamy color . . . and the style, to me at least, is shabby chic looking (it remnded me of one of the Lost 'n Found 3 paper collections).  One thing I LOVE about digi paper is being able to print it to the size I want it to be . . . and with Summer Joy, it was no different.  I used three (3) of the papers from this collection (Summer Joy 04, 07 & 08), printing each a different size. 

First off, since I was making my card a 5"x7" card, I printed SummerJoy04 7"x7" so I could use it as my base (I ended up trimming it down and using the Green Crepe (Ruche) paper from PaperTemptress as the base and some matting to give the card more texture). I printed SummerJoy08 at 5.75"x5.75" and trimmed it down to 5.75"x3.75" keeping the flowers at the sides instead of top/bottom.  And I printed SummerJoy07 at 4.5"x4.5" and trimmed the middle of it to used as one of the mats behind my image, which I printed on the Iridescent Cryogen White paper from PaperTemptress.   after added more Green Crepe (Ruche) paper, some misc. gems, flowers and fibers . . . Voila! I was done!

Remember, you have one week to get your projects 
in . . . I hope to see everyone join us this week. :)
