Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #19 - to do a CAS.....oh no!!!

Oh no! oh no! oh no!
CAS are tough ...at least to me! I always want to put on more....so many of you just whip them out beautifully...not for me. This week the Challenge from DT Member, Dawn Burnworth, is to do a CAS card: no layers and only one ribbon!!!
panic....think...think..think..then - light bulb moment!!! what was I worried about ???
Mo's images are so beautifully detailed. They make the card all by themselves! just color (-:

I'm learning to work with the digi's more and more each week - so for this card I printed the image to take up most of the front of the card. Had to off-center it slightly because wanted to give it some dimension by using a punch... wanted to thread the ribbon through the punch but also wanted to add it to her darling dress....hmmmm, since the challenge said only one ribbon - I opted to just add it to her dress. The glitter on her dress barely shows in the picture :(

Here you go:
I love this image! My inspiration is my grandaughters...the 9 yr old (Maggie) is taking dance and her first recital last year had her in a costume with this full skirt and my 3yr old (Lily) had a pink, full, long dress for Easter last year! Their GranPa would love to dance with them....he adores those two girls!

Hope you enjoyed this....I loved doing it!

Have a blessed day,

Linda this is just beautiful and this image so reminds me of dancing with my dad when I was younger! funny how things like that bring back such great memories. I think mo's images do that though, they are full of such expression and feelings, such a talent to be able to do that. lovely cased card, you did good! :O)
