Elegant WordArt Cards

Since becoming so addicted to digital images and sentiments, I have been on the hunt for some cool images online. Before being introduced to Digiments, digital sentiments were just making their way on the popularity scale along with digital stamps. Michelle, the owner of Digiments, has created some fabulous sentiments.

A couple of weeks ago, a fellow DT member, Laurie Ingram (aka Paperville), introduced me to Elegant WordArt by Bethany Harty. I just love how she has such great vision putting together wordart. You can find freebies listed on the left side of her blog - there is many of them and she adds a new one every week - how cool is that? Bethany ROCKS! Aren't they so breath taking and just so inspirational. If you are looking for more of Bethany's work, you can purchase digital wordart sets including digi scrapping kits in her store called ScrapOrchard - very affordable! Hope to do some digi scrapping one of these days.

The first two identical cards, I used 2 Sketches 4 You: Laura's sketch 30 from July 13. Of course, I missed entering these again. Oh well, most of the time, I'm not in it for the prizes, just the inspiration.

The third card is based from a new sketch challenge blog started by fellow DT member, Leigh Ann Baird (Stamping with Annie B) called Sketch Girl. This is the first sketch challenge that Leigh Ann posted: SG1. Thanks Leigh Ann for the inspiration!

The two cards that have butterfly sentiments (I made 2 of the cards that have the busy flowers on them) were thank you cards sent to my MIL, Mom and Aunt for sending me some goodies for my birthday (I was able to buy some things I've been wanting for awhile - some of the newest Nesties! Yay!!!). And the third card with the Answer to my Prayers sentiment is going to someone really special. She is a follower so hope she misses this post - teehee! I made a special project to match the card that I will post later.

You may have noticed that I have been posting cards with paper you have seen before. I've been trying to be good and use up some scraps before tearing into a new piece of paper. You gotta love those paper pads from M's and Jo's - everything coordinates so perfectly so there is no guessing!

i love the color combo of blue, red, & brown - not sure I've ever used it....but I sure am going to now after seeing your first two cards!!

Love how the 'answer to my prayers' layer is set atop the flower in the bg - looks fantastic :)
