First Challenge at Digi Haven "Forever Freebie"

(If you are looking for the CardzTV DT Challenge #10 "My Guy", click here).

I am so excited as this is the first challenge over at Digi Haven. Use a Forever Freebie. This is a digital image that is ALWAYS free...(NOT for a limited time or a Freebie of the month). There are so many of them out there. Please link back to the original artist or website (we want to give credit where credit is due). The challenge runs through Thursday and the winner will be posted on Sunday.

Ok, enough of I actually made two cards, same image, but didn't they turn out different? Here's the first one:

This is the inside (it's a gate-fold card):

and the second card:

(Phew...that was a lot!) I made the first card for my granddaughter's birthday that is coming up. The second card is not for anything special but I figure I could use it for a birthday, "thinking of you" or "just because" card. Which one do you like better?

Just want to mention (as I found this out the hard way), if you are using your colored images on a place where the back may show (as in the first card), make sure you cover the back of the image so any bleeding doesn't show. ( I realized this AFTER I put the card together, but I was able to cut another scallop and slip it behind). Learn from my mistakes! lol

I love how versatile digital images are. Color it one way and it becomes one thing, but just change the colors and it becomes something quite different. Now join the challenge over at Digi Haven and have some fun. Tell your friends!!! Good luck1

Thanks for stopping by...let me know what you think (and maybe become a follower).

imagine what you could do...


  1. Super cute. I sure do like the gate fold. I have more people using digis, but I just can't seem to jump on the wagon. Maybe I just need to practice more.

    Have a great day,

  2. Adorable! I love how you colored the digi image on both cards! The same image but yet the colors make them different! Love the gate fold of your card. :)

  3. Really cute card! I really love that purple and green together!

  4. Very nice projects! love your coloring =0)

  5. Great job on both cards. Both are equally fantastic. You are correct in that different colors or designs can totally change the same image into something totally different. I think that's all part of the fun! Thanks so much for being on the Digi Haven DT!

  6. So cute! Your granddaughter is going to love the card.
