CDAC Progressive Round #3

Happy Hump Day peeps!!  We made it through to mid-week, and hopefully yours is going well!

Have you heard about the new Progressive Challenges over at the CDAC?  If you have, hopefully you're joining us for Round #3!! 

If you haven't, don't worry, you can still buy into the Progressive Challenge for a measly $1.00!!!  Click here for all the info on how you can join in the fun and be given the chance to win some Copics!!

We were given some awesome images to play with this round and the image I used today for my creation, from Just Inklined, happens to be my favorite of the set.  Anyone that knows me, knows I love sunflowers...and so, I couldn't resist inking it up right away!

I merged the image with a gorgeous sentiment from TLC that I've been waiting and wanting to use for the longest time.   If you haven't heard about the DT Call going on over at TLC and would like to find out how to apply for Paulette's fabulous team, click here
The edges of the image were distressed in Making Memories distress ink and the polka dot paper was distressed in Tim Holtz Vintage Photo.  I cut out the scalloped corner pieces on my Cricut from an SVG file that I found on Heather M's blog for free, which you can find by clicking here.  They were both embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder to add some texture since I pretty much left the rest of the card empty of a lot of embellies.  The dots on the butterflies wings were done with a white Souffle pen to give a little extra pop.

Thanks for stopping by and as always, for leaving me some of the best, encouraging comments!!  I truly appreciate each and every one!!
