Exciting news!

I have been invited to join the design team, for Patties Creations...  by Pattie herself!
I was thrilled to be asked, and jumped at the chance.
The first challenge I am designing for, is the March challenge... "use some green."
I used "tulips in vase" image, from Patties Creations...

I decided to use the fabulous image to make my Mother-In-Law 
a Mother's Day card.
The backing paper is a fresh green, spotty paper,
with a leaf green embossed panel added at the bottom. 
A lacy punched border and a length of green gingham ribbon lay along the side,
and I added a memory box die-cut cat (as she loves our cats)
and some Martha Stewart punched butterflies
with a teeny glittery memory box die-cut bird on top. 
The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat....I love the font used.
I coloured the image with my promarkers and used a 
little Glossy Accents on the vase. 
I was really pleased with how this card came out.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...

Hi Vicky and welcome to the PC team! It is lovely to have you with us. Your first card is great. What a pretty image you chose and I really like the detail on the cut out in the white panel.

As I scrolled to find this particular card, I saw a couple others that caught my eye so I'm going to go and check them out too. See you again in a moment.

Your teammie,
Lisa D.
