Jazz Cat guest designing

How excited was I to be chosen as the Jazz Cat of the Week for this card I made for a Jazzy Inspirations Challenge?!? And it means I get to be a guest designer today too!!! Here's the inspiration album:

And here's my card:

This week's sponsor was The Digi Shack so I got to play with some digi images for my card--a first for me. I had bookmarked some tips for digi images here awhile back. Following that advice I played with the hat image and sentiment in Word (where I'm comfy) and got two different hats by flipping the image 180 degrees and making it smaller. Wow, you can't do that with a stamp! The layout is from this week's Card Positioning Systems sketch.

I hope you get to play along at Jazzy Inspirations this week (maybe you'll be the Jazz Cat!) and if you need a sketch to work with just check out Unscripted Sketches. Enjoy the weekend!

Paper: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango
Ink: black (computer printer)
Stamps: Digi Shack digi image and sentiment
Other: Cuttlebug folder (swiss dots), Sizzix embossing plate (stripes), colored pencils
