You make the world better

Hello again,

I was lucky enough to have this card published in the April/May issue of Designed to Color magazine as part of their Rainy Day theme. I really love this sweet Donna digi from Tiddly Inks and even though I've gotten her on cards before she was the first image to pop into my head when I read the call. As you can tell, I'm still lovin' that yellow and grey combo... I'm not on trend enough to tell you if it is still cool or not but it doesn't matter to me. I think this pairing is a keeper. :)
My 'Designer Tip' about creating the project that I sent in with my card was; I printed out the digital image twice and actually colored, fussy cut and pop dotted the umbrella to give it added dimension over little Donna.

Have a great day everybody!

Congrats on getting this stunning card published! The color combo is very cool...and I'm telling you this because not only are you a trend-setter, but you are also very modest. Thanks for the tip...It is such a beautiful card...I just love the color combination and the coloring!
