Digital Ink Co #10 - Use a Quote

Hiya folks!

Phew, just done the shopping run, so now I get to blog and lunch at the same time (ugh - messy keyboard!) I have my liitlest one home from school today with a croupy cough and cold, so she is miserable as sin too. I'll try to keep it short.

Time for challenge no. 10 at Digital Ink Co. TEN already!! Where do the weeks go to?!? This week we have to use a quote, as well as our alloted designer.

I got to use an image by Ildi Co from the Digital Ink Co Shoppe, and I chose this one to go with a quote I found on the internet. It reads: 'Friends are the sunshine of life' - by John Hay

I kept everything simple so I didn't take away from the image and quote together. I made some flowers with my punches to match the backing paper, which is from Raspberry Road Designs, and is part of an Autumn set.

Then I added a few leafy bits with another punch, and popped some shiny gold card here and there, to add a bit of 'sunshine' to the card.

So, your turn now guys! Show us your quotations. . . oh and your cards/projects too!! Head on over to the Digital Ink Co. Challenge Blog and peruse the DT's fabby creations!!
