A card with an aperture..............

Hi everyone!!!

It's Digi Choosday time again and this week's challenge is 'Aperture Card' - I love the Boat Digi Stamp from Dollie Goes East - which you can get as an image itself or part of the whole collection which is available as a digi download or as a CD-Rom.

I used a 7x7 card and used the smallest square in my Grand Squares Nestabilities to create my aperture. I took the Boat Image into my craft program and printed it at 4 inches - which just happens to be the size of the smallest grand nestabilitie............it's like I planned it!

The paper I used is also from the same collection and after the scientific mathematical equation to make sure the aperture would be in the same place - which actually involved more luck than anything - I was good to go. I printed out the image from the collection as it was, because it is just so pretty and I know I wouldn't do it justice if I tried to colour it.

I chose to print out some of the orchids and butterflies from the embellishments and dragged them into my craft program to resize. Good news - Mr Scissorhands was sitting peacefully minding his own business...........well that lasted no time at all! Once he cut the embellishments out all perfect, I added them to the card, and decoupaged some of them also.

A sentiment from the collection matted onto the same paper and there you have her.

Remember to visit the main blog to see the rest of the inspiration from the rest of the team, I hope that you join in the fun too, we love to see your makes. 

Till next time!
