Digi card for MyGrafico sketch

This week, I decided to try something new to me for the sketch challenge from MyGrafico Challenges.
Since we work with a digi set of stamps each week, I thought I would create a complete digi card. I haven't printed it out yet but I think I will be creating more of these to have on hand in case I need to either print up a quick card or email a greeting.

Here is the set we are working with this week:




















And here's our sketch:




















And my card:
























Isn't that just too cute?? The bear was colored in Photoshop and then I simply added a variety of elements - the digital papers are from Jady Day Studio and the staples on the sentiment piece are from Gunhild Storeide. Now I did make one change and didn't put my focal image in a circle mat but that's ok - a sketch is just meant to be a starting point.

I'm excited about the possibilities of creating digi cards...wouldn't you love to get this in your email instead of another bad office joke??  LOL

Want to play along with us at MyGrafico Challenges? All you have to do is create a card based on the sketch and then leave a link to your artwork at the MG blog. We would love to see what you create! And be sure to check out what the rest of Team B has posted on their blogs - always a delight for the eyes!

I got some new stamps in the mail today so I will have more goodies for you to see soon! Have a creative day!

Awesome digi card!

That is a fabulous idea!! Especially to keep on hand...I think I'm going to make some digi cards & save them to my computer at school. I typically need cards there and that way I'll definitely 'remember'! Great idea & card, Mary!!
