Let's Celebrate at Di's Digis

Well here we are with a new challenge at Di's Dig Challenge Blog, the theme is "Let's Celebrate".  Friends of my son have had their second child; a little sister for their son, I've made an easel card to Celebrate the occasion
The super-sweet image I've used is Hammock Slumber, I paper pieced the quilt... then didn't use that print anywhere on the card, lol. This time I used mainly Prismacolor pencils to colour, I love the soft finish they give, I did use Copics on the sky and the grass.  
Crafty Calendar and A Little Bit Crafty have "Let's Celebrate" challenges too, and Craft Your PassionSimon Says ChallengeCrafty Little Fairies and Totally Papercrafts all have "New Beginnings/ Something New" challenges so I'm entering there.
The papers are from Kaisercrafts Lullaby collection and my stash, the Picket Fence die (a Christmas pressie from my Mum, mwah) is from Cottage Cutz - it came with ejector foam - now I'm on a mission to add it to all my intricate dies, it's FAB!
 I was lucky enough to have a challenge win recently with a prize from I Am Roses, the pink daisies were part of that prize and arrived this very morning, solving my dilemma of what flowers to use!  The leaves are a Martha Stewart Branch punch.  I used one flower on the front of the card and one as the stop on the easel, biggish 3D flowers like this are great as they look like one arrangement (well I think they do anyway)  Papertake Weekly are letting us pick any of their challenges from this year for their current challenge, I've picked "Flower Power" from back in August
The sentiment came from the Kaisercraft pad, I cut it down to a rectangle and matted it on more of the pink.  Some pink Hush a Bye Card Candi to finish the "front" and another of the picket fences on the "inside" and c'est ça!  Pile it On has P is for... I have a Picket fence and Plenty of Pink, I'm in!
Creative Craft ChallengesThrough the Craftroom Door, Gem of a ChallengeHobbycutz ChallengesAllsorts Challenge and Digi Makeover have Anything Goes challenges running so I'm entering them all :-)
That's it for today's card, I hope you get time to enter the challenge; check out the rest of the team's inspiration... loads of Celebrating goin' on there, lol.  We have a great prize on offer from Crafty Ribbons and don't forget that if you use one of Di's images you go in an extra draw with a prize of two more of those sweet digis.
I'll be back in a few days, I do have a lot of "stuff" ready to show you - hubby is home until 13th, and before then we are (supposedly, ain't happened yet, lol) decorating one of the spare rooms for the babies when they come to stay, so time is against me (as usual!)
Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
