It's a bit high

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Use a Digital Image
And here is my card for your inspiration:
Here is one of my very last Valentine's Day cards.  I used this adorable image, which isn't really a Valentine's Day image, but I thought it was really sweet!  I used one of my favorite techniques for using up scraps to create the pieced together background.  All you need is a bunch of 1/2 inch strips.  It's a great way to used up those favorite patterned papers that you just can't throw away.  I used my mini MISTI to stamp my sentiment several times to get it nice and dark.  I framed/matted the image with some torn mulberry paper and finished the whole card off with a little bit of ribbon that was in my bits and pieces stash.

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

Stamps: Di's Digi Stamps "It's a Bit High" digi; Verve "Text Objects" sentiment
Dies: MFT "Stitched Heart STAX" (I didn't actually use it to cut, I traced around it and then cut the shape out with scissors so it would be a little bit larger) and "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle
