More Inspiration For the April Card Challenge

Hello, crafters!  It's my turn to inspire you to create cards this week featuring  freebie digi images from Sandra Caldwell over at Babycakes Doodle This & That.  I decided to play with paper piecing and so my first card features the digi called Love Conquers All.  My heart and the roses are printed on patterned paper and adhered to the printed image on white card stock.  I used a piece of Basic Grey patterned paper for the background and embellished with lace and a chain with a few tiny charms hanging on it.

My second card features the digi image For You.  I printed it on the same patterned paper as on my first card, but first paper=pieced the bloom and the pot and then fussy-cut the entire image onto a patterned paper background.  After framing it with brown card stock and tearing the bottom, I adhered it onto Kraft patterned paper, adding a ribbon for embellishment.  So that's three different patterned papers!

Are you inspired to go get your freebies and play in our challenge?  One participant will be chosen at random and will get a prize (see the 3/28 posting below for pics of the goodies).  Each prize will have a wonderful stamp set and asst'd embellishments to go with it.  Woo Hoo!!  I hope we have enough participants to choose one card using each of the images and if we have even more, I have more prizes!!  You can submit up to FOUR projects.  Each project must use a different image so you will be entered into the drawing for all five prizes.  You can use additional stamps and embellishments as long as you include a Babycake Doodle on your card.

Link up your projects here; if you don't have a blog, you can just email your project to Holley ( or Pat ( and we will set up your image to be linked in. Be sure and check out everyone else's cards and leave them comments. 

And if you fall in love with Sandra's images like we have, you can check them all out at her blog.  For all her art, check out her Etsy Store (link located on the sidebar at right).  So what are you waiting for?!  Go play!!  LOL  You can link your project to the post below this one.
