Easy as 1-2-3 Challenge at CDAC

Hi again... I have a new creation and this one is for The Crafter's Digital Art Center Challenge "Easy as 1-2-3". The rules for this challenge are:

1 - flower
2 - design papers
3 - pieces of bling
You Must use a Digital Image

I made a birthday card and used one of my own images called "Blue Jay on Dogwood Branch". You can purchase this image and many more at my Store...
I created my own designer papers using Photoshop. I created the plaid paper and the paper with fans. I love making my own papers because you can match the designs to the colors of the image. I colored my image also with Photoshop and used the Oil Painting Technique. I added 1 flower, some leaves, a pearl and 3 green rhinestones. I finished my card with a sentiment. I hope you like it...

Patti your Blue Jay is so pretty and I must give this oil painting technique a try as the results are amazing. Clever chookie to make your own design paper with the colours that you wanted to match you little bird. You nailed the 1 2 3 challenge with your added details and the little flower would almost get away with being a dogwood. Thanks for joining in the challenge at cdac.

Pattie - this came out gorgeous! The plaid paper is awesome and I love that fan paper strip you made. I actually thought it was ribbon until I read your post. I might just give this challenge a try.
