Grand Opening! Come on in, stay a while...

Hi everyone! Come on in! Today is a special day for us as we are officially introducing Toni and The Digi Shack. I am so lucky to be on her first ever DT, the images are great! I know you will enjoy her sense of humor.
For today only, all of the images at The Digi Shack are 50% off until midnight MST. (The best part is that supplies are unlimited, they are digis afterall!)

All weekend and week long, the Design Team has been showing you cards made with these fun-loving, versatile, and happy images. Now you have the opportunity to go and get some for yourself!

We are also featuring The Digi Shack's first challenge:
Isn't this sketch wonderful? So many possibilities! You can rotate it to your liking, but please be sure to include all the elements in your awesome interpretation.
But wait! You need a required image. {Note: Image has been removed as the allotted time has expired. Thank you!}
Here is my card using this sketch and image:
A few card deets:
I printed off the digi on pink cardstock, then again on white cardstock. I colored in the leaves with copics, and then cut out the white cardstock's individual blossoms and paper pieced them over the original blooms. The paper fan was handmade with this wonderful Asian paper that I received as a gift. There were colorful blossoms all over it, so I pulled the blue and caramel out of it for my background papers. The caramel cardstock was run through my Cuttlebug for more texture. The wording says "to wonderful you from thankful me" from SU's recent SAB set "Sweet Little Sentiments." (It's lighter in my picture, I stamped it in a softter color as black was a little too harsh for my card palette.)

So here's a friendly recap:

OMG, that is adorable! I cannot believe you cut out all the flowers individually! You go girl! (I laughed at your comment on another card b/c I too take sketch way too literally...) Happy Grand Opening Today!

Hey Joni! Wow, awesome card! So pretty! Love the beautiful pink and blue colors of your card!! Feels like spring looking at your card! Can't wait to see more of your creations with the digi shack images!

Hey, we were in DC last year. . .it was sort of sad because the cherry blossoms bloomed early and fell off before the parade. I think it has to do with global warming. We left DC before the parade so we didn't get to see the parade but we saw the Cherry Blossoms in bloom. . .so pretty!

Where in Virginia do you live? We visited the Centreville/Fairfax/Herndon area. Virginia is pretty. My husband flies to Herndon for business and we've accompanied him on a few trips.
