A "simple" challenge

Hi everyone!  I took about an hour this morning to make a card that was just for fun.  I was surfing around and saw the newest Paper Crafts Simple Sentiments gallery challenge- Simple Sentiments.  I thought, "Cool!  I can do that."  Then I read on and realized we had to download the sentiments from their website and use THEM on a card.  ACK!!!!  You see me and digi are NOT friends.  So after several panicked emails to Rachel, she got me up and running with this little baby sentiment!
I combined the sentiment with the super cute papers from Echo Park, the Springtime Collection!  I just love circle on cards and this is one of my favie layouts!  It's cute, quick, and a great way to use paper scraps. 

Helpful tip:  When die cutting pattern paper circles with your Spellbinders Nestabilities, you can cut more than 1 at a time!  Just put 2 pieces of paper under your die instead of the normal 1.  Pattern Paper is much thinner than cardstock, so it runs through your machine with no problem and get all your circles cut in 1/2 the time!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  I'll leave you with a close-up picture.



  1. totally darling is this!!!! Love the soft colours, embossing and yummy ribbon treatment! Miss you girl - have to chat again soon!!!

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one that is a bit digi challenged! I have wasted more CS trying to get the right image sizes! Love your CAS card with the fun colored sentiment!

  3. Adorable, love your downloaded digi sentiment! So cute.

  4. Aww I love this card! It's so adorable hun!

  5. Hi Michelle~

    Congratulations! You have achieved your goal of getting that digi sentiment out of the computer and looking adorable on this very cute card!

    It doesn't even have to be for an actual baby. It could be a romantic sentiment for a spouse, or boyfriend...or something like that! lol

    I have accumulated quite a few free digis...and just had luck last week on getting them onto my cardstock! lol It's a great alternative!
