Thinking of You Card Using Imagine That Pandas Digi Set

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends DT - Challenge 15 - Anything Goes 

Hello Friends.  I am celebrating my 600 Followers and 3 years with Close To My Heart; and would love to have all of you participate in my Blog Celebration.  Click here for the blog post.  Join my followers on Google Friend Connect, add your link and leave a comment.  I am giving away a lot of wonderful prizes, at least 25 total; maybe more; depending on entries.  Anyone who wins outside US will qualify for digi stamps from my wonderful sponsors; as I am not allowed to send CTMH products outside the US.

It is time for another fabulous challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Challenge 15 - Anything Goes.  You are allowed to enter three times and add any number of challenges to your post.  Isn't that exciting!  I can't wait to see your wonderful creations!

I created my card using Imagine That digis by Kris - Pandas.  They are so sweet.  I just loved playing with this set of digis.  I tried something new that I just learned how to do.  I merged 2 colored PNG digis and 2 PNG sentiments with a digi paper for the front of the card.  I thought it came out pretty awesome!  I also used another digi paper, sentiment and some of the cute little images inside the card; from this same set. I used my Print and Cut feature on the Cricut Design Space with my Cricut Explore to cut out the images inside.  It is amazing to have so many options in each of Kris's digi sets.  I got the bamboo pieces from Cricut Life Is A Beach Cartridge.  

This is a fabulous set Kris.  So many options and so much fun to work with.  I love all of your digi sets. This set also has images in black and white; for all the coloring creators out there.  I am spoiled with the colored images; and now I am really spoiled having this option to merge images with the digi paper.

Used 2 colored images, 2 sentiments and digi paper
