[DYSU] Challenge #71 - Use a Flower

Good morning, everyone! If you're looking for our next DYSU challenge, please come on in :) If you're here to find a new source of inspiration, please come look around, too. We are doing things at DYSU a little differently. The team talked it over and mentioned that they weren't able to give the last entries on DYSU the same full consideration and time as the ones entered throughout the week. Wendesday's closing time and us dispersed around all kinds of time zones can't all vote in a Top Three before the Winner's post goes up. So we're trying something different by closing the challenge a day early. So get your cards in by Tuesday, 2pm DYSU time.

This week's theme at DYSU: Use a Flower (or more). I hope you have your flower stash in sight: bring on your pattern paper, your flower embellishments, your stamps... anything pretty much fits here.

For this week I got to play with an awesome image from one our sponsors The Greeting Farm. A really great company if you personally ask me ;) This digi is a cutie called Chibi Japan

Stamps: (Chibi Japan) The Greeting Farm; (Out on a Limb - Revised) Papertrey Ink; (Asian Garden) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - White) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin No. 11 - Brown Sugar, No. 1 - Chewing Gum) Ranger; (Memento - Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Mistery Huey - Clover, Lunch Tray) Studio Calico; (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor

I decided to mist the background together. I created a mask for the little grass hills, and cut out one little hill out, which all got some Clover misting treatment. The background sky is Lunch Tray. Chibi Japan is colored up in some Prisma color pencils. The tree is suppose to be a a cherry blossom tree, where I popped some of the flowers off the base card stock. Here is a close-up of the cute little digi...


That's all I have for you today; please check out the amazing creations by the talented DT and welcome our guest designers. And I look forward to seeing your entries!
