Designed2Delight March Reveal and Blog Hop

Welcome to the Designed2Delight 
March Reveal and Blog Hop.

You should have arrived here from Debbie's Blog.  She started us off with some great Spring inspiration.
If not, you will want to start at the beginning.

* All new release images will be 20% for 3 days--sale ending at 7      AM Friday, March 23.


* I will be giving a New Release image away to someone that leaves a comment on my blog.  I will choose the winner on Friday, March 23 at 7 AM (EST).

I used the new March image, Ladybugs.


 I used the printing on Kraft card stock and coloring with colored pencils technique.  Simple card with some embellishments.




I went a little more detailed on this cards and also, used  a piece of the Pure Love striped DP by Designed2Delight.  A lot more detail on this card. 



My third and last card is a very simple card.  Again, I printed the ladybugs image and the sentiment (included with the new "Drenched" set) on Kraft card stock and colored again with colored pencils.  I finished the card with some flower brads.

I hope that I was able to inspire you and show you that one image can be used in a variety of different styles. Faith will be offering 20% off the new March releases until Friday morning (7am EST).

Your next stop is Peggy.  She is sure to wow us with her designs!

Sunshine and Happy Hopping to You!
