Lace, Vellum & Pearls

Look what I found... I made this card last week sometime then promptly forgot all about sharing it.  I borrowed the sketch from the Clean & Simple blog.  

 Quick peek at the inside...

Many Thanks: MDS

I know, it looks a little different from what you normally see on my blog.  That's because this is a digital card.  Made entirely in MDS, My Digital Studio.  MDS is Stampin' Up!'s digital software for scrapbooking, card making or any other project you can come up with.

I've used it to make my blog header, business cards, wedding invitations, birthday invitations and thank you notes as well as projects for my home!  I am new to MDS so am just learning all the neat tricks that you can do with digital. 

One of my favorite things about creating digitally is that you get to control the size, color and location of everything- FULL CONTROL!  It's the best for a control-freak like me. 

I'm not good enough yet to give a full description of just what I used, but I can tell you this- the patterned paper inside the letters... I made that myself!  And I can share it with you! Thanks to the wonderful MDS blog and all the incredible people on the forums willing to answer my silly questions!  Best part is, the MDS blog is available to everyone, not just SU demonstrators!  You can find the custom paper I made HERE and while you're there you can join the group and be my friend!

So anyway, if you haven't considered MDS yet now you can give it some thought.  I'm planning to crank out some scrapbooks with it so I'll be able to share those with you eventually.  Don't worry, I am not going to stop my traditional scrapbooking! 

Here is the Paper Players challenge I am participating in today.  Giving thanks!  Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
