The end of another month is looming and I need to get some challenges done. Today I have a card made using an image from the May progressive challenge set from Deedee's Digis
This is a real fun way of getting some gorgeous new images and the set for this month is called Dad's day off. Perfect for a Father's day card, birthday or just because. I needed to make a retirement card, and kept it fairly simple with no 'fussy bits' for someone retiring soon.
The paper I used was a freebie from Lisa of Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, who is so generous with giving free papers from time to time. She also runs a progressive Christmas challenge, so worth paying her a visit.
I matted the patterned paper onto brown cardstock.
The image is a precoloured one from the set (quick and easy) and the 'retirement' sentiment is also from the set.
The sentiment was computer generated and cut out with a Nellie Snellen label die and attached with 2 metal button brads.
This was the set for May. It also includes precoloured images which can be a great help when in a hurry and if you would like to join, then go and see all the details on Deedee's blog
