Digital Ink Co - Challenge No 17

Hello everyone
Oh my word, I have to say thank you once again for all your fabulous entries into the Digital Ink Co challenge last time.  All I can say is I'm glad we use the Random Number Generator to chose a winner because I wouldn't want the job of choosing a winner from all your fabulous entries!  So were you the lucky winner? - hop on over to Digital Ink Co Challenge site and have a look see.
Remember our sponsor for this month is the fabulous Paper Wishes and for this challenge they are giving a mystery prize
So on to this week's challenge.  This challenge is to do with "Peace".  Now you can take this in whatever way you want to.  It can be World Peace, that special something that brings you peace or you could take it from a completely different angle and go with "piece of cake"!  The choice is completely yours my friends.  So please don't be daunted by the challenge title, just give it a little thought and give it your best shot. Sometimes the challenges we don't want to enter are the ones we win!!

Now my project doesn't meet this week's challenge, and there is a very good reason for this.  My project features a digital image from one of the creators who are sponsoring our three prize winners images. 
This image called "Happy Dayz" is from Lexi's Creations and is priced at $1.50.  You can see this and all of her other wonderful digital images at the Digital Ink Co Store, so hurry on over and grab your little "piece" of Lexi.
So I've told you what the name of the image is and here is a piccy to go with it:
I decided to make not one card but 10, yes ten!!!  This image is just such a sweet simple image I really didn't think it needed to be "overdone".  I wanted to use it as a stand alone image and decided to make a pack of Thank You cards complete with their own presentation box.
So first off I printed out 10 cards with Lexi's image and the words Thank You underneath.  Then I coloured in the images all the same.  I coloured the image with ordinary pencils and added some gold stickles to the middle of the flower where the seeds would be.
I cut 10 lengths of dark yellow ribbon and added a "tie" at the side.  I was going to add a single gem to each card too but couldn't decide where to put it!  So eventually I decided - if I don't know where it should go - then it shouldn't go!!
Then I made a box for the cards to go in.  Using my multiscore board, I cut a base from plain white card and a box lid from sage green card to compliment the cards.  I cut an aperture in the lid and added a piece of acetate so that you could see the cards inside the box.  I added a sage green ribbon across an angle at one corner of the box and then added a flower to the top right of the box for balance.  I also added a piece of bubble wrap to the inside of the box so that the cards wouldn't slide about.
So there you have it - a fabulous little gift or selling item with a fabulously simple image.  So hurry on over to the Digital Ink Co challenge blog site and add your project to Mr Linky to be in with a chance to win one of the fabulous creator images on offer this week along with our sponsor prizes.
Remember if your entry features a Digital Ink Co image - you get two entries instead of one - how cool is that?
Remember also, if you haven't already signed up for the Digital Ink Co Newsletter - you really are missing out!!  Just for subscribing you get a free digital image every week - and what's more these images are not available in the store, they are purely for our Newsletter subscribers.  It also gives you news about Digital Ink Co and it's Creators and Designers.  Not only that it is the first place that our new releases are shown in our TGIW (Thank God it's Wednesday) features so you will be ahead of everyone else when it comes to knowing what is on the release shelf.  Of course you now have the added incentive of being spotted by our little owl friend here:
Your blog will then feature in our Newsletter and on the store blog and you get to put this cute little fella on your sidebar telling everyone you've been spotted by Digital Ink Co!
I would love you to become a follower of my blog - then you will get a heads up
on any sales:
special offers;
or new ideas:
that are happening at the Digital Ink Co store and if you want to become a follower of the Digital Ink Co Challenge blog then that will also give you advance information on all of the above too.
So, having had a quick peak at my project for this week, hop on over to Digital Ink Co Challenge blog and have a look at what the rest of the DT have put together to give you some inspiration.  Clicking on their names will take you to their blog for more detailed information on their projects, and you could also become a follower of their blog too!!
