In Memory of Jacqui...

 We were notified this morning that Jacqui, the owner of  The Digi Garden (this weeks challenge sponsor), recently passed of suspected heart failure.  My heartfelt condolences go out to her family and friends - and I hope they find our cards using her images a tribute to her work. 

This card was created for 
You can see other inspirational cards on this theme by the CYP Design Team HERE.
Really hope you will join us & enter your creations by Sunday February 10, 2013 
for the chance to win a prize. 

The image is "Emily's Winter Outfit" from the Digi Garden - sweet and fun to color.  I printed three copies, colored and fussy cut the layers.  Each layer was sculpted for dimension and adhered with foam tape.  I started with a lavender base card, layered DP and two scalloped ovals for my focal image.  The same was done with the sentiment.  For embellishments I used punched snowflakes with a drop of Liquid Pearls' "White Opal" on each of the six points of each flake.  There are also two drops "tacking" the white oval of the sentiment to the layer below it. 

This card should be eligible for the following

and always, always, make what amuses you!
