BLDC12, My Grafico & Card Ideas

Sometimes I find color challenges especially difficult, especially if I don't have any designer paper that perfectly coordinates.  But I love the challenge, and I usually do my best to stick to the colors pretty closely.  For today, I have a card for the:

I used Ella's Umbrella and colored her with Prismacolor markers, I also paper-pieced her boots and part of her umbrella.  I used various DP's.  Glitter and ribbon are from SU! Isn't she precious?

I am also entering this card into the:

It's funny - a year ago, I only had a few digi images and rarely used them.  Today, I use digis more than rubber!  But there's room in my heart for both of my addictions - it just so happens that digis also save room in my crafting area! One of the things I love about digis is not getting black ink on my fingers - I cannot tell you how annoyed I get when I spend time stamping on my good cardstock, only to realize I got black ink on my finger(s) and smeared it on my images.  GRRRRR!  What do you like about digi images?  Peace.
