Cards by Lady Ann's Challenge #7 (2/22 to 3/28)

Happy Friday everyone, what are you creating this weekend?

I have been MIA, since my vacation last January 19th to February 5th no particle reason for it except for being so excited for my friend who is getting married in June and since I will not be able to attend the wedding I went ahead and I teamed up with another BFF in gifting our friend her wedding invitations, giveaways and thank you cards to match which is keeping me real busy right now. 
I will be posting more about this as I go along with the creative process.

But for now why don't you head on over to Cards by Lady's Ann Blog for the next Challenge. 
It's Friday Sentimental Challenge # 7. The winner of the challenge will receive 2 digi stamps from
this challenge sponsor, Stamp N Doodle.

Here's the digistamp that I picked is from Stamp N Doodle:

Here's the card I made with this digital stamp:

I am really looking for a gentleman look on this card. This digi stamp reminds me of my Grandpa watching over our little cousin Regan in the rain. It's been 9 year since my Granpa 'Lolo' passed away but I really miss him. He has been like a father to me and my brother. 

You may not be able to see it but I used paper tole technique on the digi stamp. After I colored the digi stamp using Adobe Photoshop Elements I printed it 4 times. I accordingly cut in a way to give it depth or 3D Look.

I really welcome all comments. Let me know what you think. 

Have a great weekend!
