Life is Beautiful!

Good Morning! I apologize that it has been so long since I have posted, but I've been working on 2 cards that feature new Doodle Pantry Digi Images that will release on Tuesday, July 20th, as well as several other Digi Images. The first image that I have to share with you today, is called "Italian Street Scene" and it has so many possiblities as far as how to color the beautifully illustrated Italian villas by Laurie Wilson. I picked up a new pad of paper by DCWV called "Linen Closet" and I just love the soft, subtle colors and tones in this collection. I knew this glittery (although the photos don't pick up on the glitter) floral paper would be perfect for this Italian scene. Remember, you can right-click on any photo to see a larger view.

Oh, on a side niote, "La Vita e Bella" means "Life is Beautiful! and if you haven't seen the movie, Life is Beautiful...you must put it on your "to see" list! It is wonderful!! Below, is a photo of the card interior, where I used coordinated papers and design.
