Designed2Delight Reveal Day

It's that time of month that Designed2Delight reveals the month's new digital images. And in conjunction we are having a blog hop. Probably how you got here!

I think you are going to love each and every one of the new images. They are the cutest collection of characters and images for Spring and Easter.

For my first card I chose 'Easter Egg Tulips'. 

I didn't want to do the usual small image on top of a background. I wanted the image to be the whole card! 
Kinda bigger than life.
I printed on watercolor paper and used Ranger Distress inks to color.
I printed a D2D sentiment from 'Lovely Day' and inserted it behind the bow by cutting a slit with an Exacto knife.

My second card is in Warhol fashion.
I have been wanting to do a Warhol card for the longest time and keep forgetting.

This cute doggie is called 'Spring Fetch'.

The rest of the Design Team has some terrific cards so keep on hopping over to Debbie's blog.
Thanks for hopping by!

These are just gorgeous - love the large image on the first one, you don't even need anything else, it's just so pretty and really draws the eye! The Warhol one is cool, too, I'll have to try that! :)

Love the large one layer image, that's so pretty with the tulips. Fun Warhol style card, too. The big gingham bow is a great touch.

Great job, Peggy! I love both of your cards and like the way you used a larger image of the tulips and made the sentiment part of your bow. The dog image makes me smile :)

Adore the big bold tulips image with soft colors. Never thought of doing this for a one layer- great inspiration!

Both cards are so adorable! Love the idea of making the entire image the card. I don;t think I've tried that before or the Warhol effect. Great ideas. I do have to try them both! TFS!

That first card is so pretty! I love how you made it larger than life! Your second card is cute as can be, and I find it interesting because I just did a warhol type of card a couple of weeks ago with a dog. Mine is a little different than yours - you can see it here if you're interested. http://hogwildaboutstamping.blogspot.com/2012/02/andy-warhols-dog.html

Thanks for playing in Squigglefly's challenge! I hope you'll play again!

I love the way your flower image fills the whole card. Great inspiration for me as I often do a smaller image on top of a background. It is great to see something different. Great colouring too.

I love the big black and white bow on the card with the three dog images.
