The Digi-Shack grand opening - giveaway

Kristen, one of my blogging "sisters" is one of the Design Team at DigiShack, so I went across to check it out and found a freebie design and a challenge. Today (15 April) all their designs are on offer to celebrate their grand opening.

The freebie is a very pretty blossom image, however despite only printing it 3" high it is quite pixillated and isn't a sharp, clean image, unlike other digi-images that I have. However I've coloured it with watercolour pencils, cut some extra blossoms for the tag and used the challenge sketch. I've queried the quality of the image on their blog and hopefully this is just a glitch as they have some very nice designs.

The ribbon is a gift from my blogging "sister" Vanja and the double-sided paper that I've used comes from Stamp Attic. No designer name on it but isn't it pretty?

EDITED: I have discovered that I downloaded the free image wrongly by right clicking on the image at the blog, that says "free image". Navigate from it to the download page and you will get a high quality, clear image. My mistake, not Digi-shacks :). Tomorrow I'll colour in the image again.


  1. How beautiful! This is just so pretty, wonderful job!

  2. Beautiful as always! I must hop over there too...

  3. Beautiful card...thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge

  4. Anne,
    Did you copy the image from me? I am wondering, cause I messed around with the image a bit. When I printed the image, it was clear. Maybe if you copy her image it may be better.
    Anyways, your card ROCKS!!!!! great job. I have some free images for you, that I will send along. Thanks for playing.

  5. its very pretty! love the colours!

  6. Beautiful card even with the pixilation. - I was wondering, did you just copy & save from the blog you visited or did you actually download the image from the 4share website? Because I have the image and had no problems with the image - it actually comes quite large and has to be made smaller to get to the 3" height you described.

  7. From here you can't tell sharp or not it really is beautiful. Nicely done.

  8. Gorgeous card!!! Thanks for playing along with us!!!

  9. Anne, AMEN to what you wrote to me about Miss Susan Boyle. She is such an inspiration to me. My eyebrows are still going to get plucked, but I hope my self criticism becomes less. You are beautiful from the inside out, regardless of your outer beauty. I hope I remember that always.
    Hugs, Leslie
