AiFactory Tuesday - Digipaper Challenge

Hi Everyone!! I bet you guys all thought I'd dropped off the face of the planet. Well, not quite, but it sure felt that way! My computer was giving me grief, the youngest one was sick, Thanksgiving, school - you know the drill. I'm starting to feel like that lovely quote "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get."

In any case, this is the first time I've used actual printed digi-paper on a card. My first few ideas weren't working like I wanted them to. I think I was over-thinking things again. I tend to do that, especially when I'm stressed out. So then I remembered that I'd seen this week's Clean & Simple challenge over at SCS. It was to rework a card of your own. I chose this card. Now, there's nothing inherently wrong with that card at all. In fact, a couple people have favourited it. So I thought, why not let the digital paper be the star this time?

This is what I came up with.

As you can see, the paper is a subdued stripe in a light, sage green. I added some snowflakes and stamped the word "peace" into the corner, using the same ink and embossing powder as I used on the original card. The dimensions are the same, too. As Jen Buck would say EPLS.

Now it's your turn! You have until Monday, December 7, at Midnight! Post your challenge links to the AiFactory Challenge Blog and if you post to online galleries, please use the tag AIF014.

Oh, you want to know what you can win this week?? Your very own set of AiFactory Digital Papers. While you're checking those out, take a peek around. Mia has extended the Cyber Monday sale through Saturday, December 5!! Everything in the shop is 50% off!!

We'd also love it if you'd head around to see what the rest of the DT has to share. Thanks and have an awesome day!
