100% Digital Today for One Lucky Dad

One of my New Year's Resolutions, way back on January 1st, was to teach myself Adobe Photoshop. I have been hard at play, I mean work, digitally crafting with some very awesome digi images, papers and elements from some of my favorite designers.
Today I created this fun Father's Day card using images from Dee Dee's Digis set Dad's Day Off. The set comes with:
3 outline images, 17 pre-colored images, 3 white-filled layering images, and 7 sentiments, in JPG and PNG file formats.
To set the scene, I used a background from the Marta Vaneck Curiosity Cabinet set of background papers. I framed it and my sentiment with a gold frame element from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, embellishing one corner with a few musically-themed sunflowers and teal buttons from Decosse's as well.
And to bring back the reference to my resolution, my card today is 100% digital!! In finishing this project, I realize I need to invest in some elements that will bring my cards and such to a higher level, things like shadowing effects and a whole lot more embellishments!
Meanwhile, I am entering my card into DeeDee's Digis Challenge Blog. It's a progressive challenge, so as long as you create with the Digi of the Month, you will get the next month's image set FREE! And who doesn't like FREE?!

An amazing background set beautifully with the image, making it a "room". I love what you have done. AND so glad to see someone else work with PS as I do and enter a 100% digi.
If you want ready made shadow's to help with your layers, email me and I can send you in the right direction, they really help when starting out. Thank you so much for joining us at Deedee's Digis Progressive challenge, I look forward to seeing more of your work.
