Clematis Flower Digi Card...I'm A Digi Newbie!



Hi everyone! I took a little leave of absence from the MMSC for the next entry since my husband was home, and I wasn't sure if I would have time to get my entry in on time. I will be back for the MMSC16 though. In the meantime, I thought I would share this card I made with one of the MMSC sponsors Sue's digi image. I was not thrilled with the way my card came out, so I didn't want to post this earlier, but I do love her images, so I wanted to share for you to see her wonderful work. I will have to try this again. I am not great with the digi's yet, so I think it will take me some practice to get it right. I have a terrible time sizing and printing the digi's. My MMSC16 card will be another digi image, so let's see if I can do any better with that one. Let me know what you think when you see them both together. Remember, it will not be the MMSC15, but the one following that. Thanks! I will appreciate your input.

What paper punch is this????? I was trying to explain this to Michelle and Denise at CHA and they looked at me like I was nuts. Ok, I am nuts, but still...what is this punch? :)

And of course, you know I love the fact that you are trying to use my images. I know you are WAY OUT of your comfort zone. But that's what makes us grow and learn. You are learning to use digi's and I'm learning what people need to know on how to use digis! :)

I love it! You keep it up, gurlfriend!

Carolyn, this is really gorgeous... Don't be so hard on yourself. ;) I know what you mean about struggling with re-sizing. I'm still learning too. This really is wonderful!
