IDIC Challenge #22 - Keep it Simple!

A very exciting post for me, my very first DT card for the I Did It Creations challenge blog!

The theme this week is 'Keep it Simple' and our sponsor is the lovely TreesAward in Digital Stamps! Check out their lovely designs at the Stitchy Bear and I Did it Creations crafting boutique!

For my DT card, I've used their 'Boat Image' along with Dovecraft paper and kept the embellishments to a minimum. There's something quite tranquil about this Digi, I love the ripples in the water and have added some glossy accents to this area to give it a bit of shine.

What a lovely card! I bet the glossy accents look great on the water, it'll make it look real. :)

Gemma this is a fantastic card, blue and white is so apt. Thank you so much for choosing the image, and entering it into so many challenges. It seems an age since I have been able to comment on people's blogs and just look what I have missed! You have really done justice to the image and have made a truly lovely card. I hope you will allow me to put it in my gallery?
Hugs, Teresa xxx
