Daydream Designs: A Bird Sings

Hi everyone and welcome to another Daydream Monday. It's time for me to share another project created with some of the fabulous digital products available at Daydream Designs.
Today's project really feels like I cheated in some way because I created my entire card front in Photoshop Elements and then printed in out, added some ribbon and glued it to my card base. But, I guess it's just another example of what you can do with digital stamps and papers. I wasn't feeling well enough to sit down at my craft desk and cut, layer, color, etc so, I did it all on my laptop.

I knew I wanted to use the Fun and Flirty digital paper pack and I started with the Peach Polka Dot digital paper. Then I added a layer of the White Stripe digital paper. I added a drop shadow to this layer so that it would look more like layered paper. I decided I wanted to work with the Robin Sitting on Branch digital stamp from the Birds and Bees digital stamp set and I colored the image using the tools in PSE. I picked a sentiment from the Birds and Bees Sentiment set and layered it onto the scene I had already put together. Once I had everything the way I wanted it, I merged all the visible layers together and proceeded to print.

I trimmed the card front out and inked the edges with Calypso Coral ink. It seemed like it would be to CAS for me so, I added a Soft Sky ribbon and bow and then adhered it to a base of Calypso Coral cardstock.

Supplies: from Daydream Designs: Fun and Flirty digital paper pack, Birds and Bees digital stamp set, Birds and Bees digital sentiments; Photoshop Elements; Calypso Coral CS; Soft Sky Double Stitched ribbon. 
This is a great way to mass produce cards when you don't have a lot of time. I am beginning to understand the attraction to digital more and more everyday.

Challenges I would like to enter:
