Hey, Hey, It's Digi Day!

Well...it was digi day...yesterday! :-) On the weeks that I have a SALT challenge, I'm a day behind for the Sweet 'n Sassy digi day over at Scrapbook News & Review. Every Thursday, you have the opportunity to participate in the challenge and win FREE digital images from Sweet 'n Sassy!! And have you seen all of the new images that have been uploaded...they're wonderful!! Check them out here! This week's challenge was to use an Easter theme on your card. I've had this lovely cross image colored and waiting in my stash of images for the past few weeks. As soon as I heard the challenge, I knew I had the perfect image ready to go! I kept the card layout fairly simple to keep this beautiful image front and center. The paper is some left over SU! paper I had lying around and how about that ribbon? A throw back to my beginning SU! days...I haven't used the narrow grosgrain ribbon in ages! But it was the perfect color match, no? :-) Hope your day is sunny and bright, as it's been here in NH this week! We've had the windows open, the kids have been outside playing until dark, and we're hopeful that soon the water table will go down so our basement will be void of all water! LOL! Enjoy! PS - I had a few questions about how I created the background of my card yesterday (behind the tree) and it was created by using the 'direct to paper' technique, which is bascially just swiping the ink pad across the paper. I found this particular technique on Michelle Zindorf's blog. Also, my layout yesterday came from this week's Card Patterns sketch!
