Sweet thief, whence didst thou steal thy sweet…


The card I’m sharing today features an image from Mo’s Digital Pencil, Cupcake Thief, my first time ever using one of Mo Manning’s gorgeous images.

There’s a new challenge I’m proud to be a DT member of, Show Your Digi Love, where the theme is always anything goes with that month’s chosen digi artists.  It’s all about using the images you have in your stash and showing some love for the artists who created them.  In my case having Mo’s Digital Pencil among the chosen artists for our first challenge was a perfect excuse to go off and buy my very first (and second and third and, well, you get the picture) Mo Manning digi.

To make up my card I followed the current sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  As I’d printed and coloured my digi on my usual 4x6 piece of card I was a bit constrained on my circle size choice.  I actually used the largest of the Nestie set and had to use the “out of the box” technique (for a great tut check out the Kraftin’ Kimmie blog post by Becky) to fit the image in.  As a result I ended up shrinking down the other two circle elements.

I swapped out the flower element for a cupcake button from my stash; I also raided my stash for some interesting embellies for the other two circle elements.  As I have three different types of embellishments I am entering this in the current challenge over at Brown Sugar.

Now I don’t really have anything warm on this card, I guess trying to make a quick getaway on foot carrying three very large and tasty cupcakes would get you rather warm, but fortunately the main theme over at Bronte and Bella’s Challenge is anything goes and I do have my Mo Manning image so I’m also entering my card there.

Hope to see you over at Show Your Digi Love, easy peasy anything goes every month and a whole month to enter the challenge.  It’s a just for fun challenge but there are some gorgeous badges to display on your blog if you’re among the DT’s top picks and the overall DT favourite will be asked to guest DT in the next month’s challenge.  It’s a great way to show your love for the artists that make our hobby possible and your financial support (yep we all like a freebie but artists need to eat too!) so they can keep creating their awesome art.
