Enjoy Life Template Variation

Baltimore Swap, Matted with PearlsHere’s my swap from the Stampin’ Up Regional in Baltimore, Maryland, April 13. The design was all done with My Digital Studio, using the Spring to Life Kit. To make it a hybrid project, I added a mat in Lucky Limeade and added Pearls, in graduated sizes, to the butterflies.

Baltimore SwapMy design was inspired by a birthday card by Heather Summers from the Simply My Digital Studio Challenge group on Facebook. I switched out the kit and used different embellishments.

My one cheat is the butterflies. No amount of recoloring the butterfly embellishment from the Spring to Life Kit was giving me a butterfly that looked appropriately Lucky Limeade. If I were patient, I could have colored in the butterfly using the Freeform Tool. As it happens, I’m not that patient. I took the butterfly to Photoshop, used the magic wand, and refilled the butterfly in Lucky Limeade. Its mat outline is Always Artichoke.
