Spring into Spring with Di's Digis

I've done it again... posting my DT card for the new challenge at Di's Digis Challenge Blog a day late; all I can say is I'm sorry :-( I've been ridiculously busy and I'm still working out the nuances of my new laptop; I had to buy an updated version of Photoshop as my antique version just wouldn't function and I don't have time to learn Photoscape or one of the other freebies I've had lurking for a while waiting until I got a "Roundtuit".  Anyway I'm done now, here's my watermarked-in-Photoshop Elements 13-card :-))  The challenge theme is "Spring", I've gone for Spring colours and flowers.
I made this card for my granddaughter... can you believe my darling Twinnies are TWO already?? boy that went fast!!  I haven't blogged their first birthday cards yet, have to get onto that, lol.  This image is perfect for Miss Emily, she loves teddies and she loves pressies, it's called Teddies Pressie, you can get yours here.  Sparkles Monthly Challenge has a "Teddies" theme, I'm in!  As You Like It wants to know if we like "Lines" or "No Lines" ... I like "Lines", but then, I haven't tried "No Lines" yet... so who really knows? lol
I coloured with Copics, adding some Stickles to the big bow on the pressie. Bunny Zoes CraftsCrazy 4 ChallengesCrafty CardmakersCorrosive Challenges and Card Mania Challenges have Spring Themes, so I'm entering them and Send a Smile for Kids wants to see Pastel Colours for Kids so I'm entering there too. I've got Stripes and Dots... and I've used the colours in the pic from Cupcake Inspirations, so I'm entering there.  
I followed the sketch from the Digi Sketch Challenge I cut the image panel and the purple mat (using watermarked silk effect card from my stash) using Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Circle Dies, Papertake Weekly have "A Cut Above" for their Challenge, so I'm entering there too.  Whimsy Inspirations Challenge want use to Use a Die Cut, so I'm entering there.  The papers are from Pool Party Collection and Kaisercraft's Save the Date. I'll be entering Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge and Clear It Out's Challenge which has Theme: birthday and Stash: Polka Dots.  
I finished the inside of the card using the same papers and a "reduced" version of the sketch. 
The flowers were punched from textured vellum then inked with Kaisercraft Ink, the pearl centres are from my stash.  and that, as they say, was that!! The Paper Shelter has "Blooming" as their theme so I'm entering there.  Craft Your PassionThrough the Craftroom DoorSeize the BrthdaySimon Says ChallengeLittle Miss MuffetCreatalicious Challenges and Outlawz Friday Colouring Challenge all have Anything Goes challenges running, so I'm entering them too. 
Well that's it for today.  I'll be back soon, with something from my drafts... as well as all those cards I I have three birthdays cakes (including the Twin's first birthday cake, yup - from a year ago, YIKES) that I'm pretty proud of I've gotta say :-))  Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
