Life Is Tough ~ But So Are You

Another one of my favorite digital artist is Angie Blom of Angie Blom Digital Designs.  Most of you know her from the many years she was with Unity Stamps and her famous 'Angie Girls' that we all collected in the red rubber stamps.   

I was totally thrilled when I was Angie's Monthly winner for February with her 'A Warm Hug Girl' card.  I was able to get a couple of new packages with the $20 gift card that I won! Be sure to check out her monthly contest on her facebook page ~ Angie Blom's Digital Creations

For today's card, I'm showcasing her amazing Bengal Tiger ~ 'You're One Cool Cat'.  I love the sentiment in this package, which I've used for the title of today's blog...

Life Is Tough ~ But So Are You

After Copic coloring I used the Whimsy Stamps Zig Zag Rectangle Die for the edge.  The black background die is Torn Panel by Crafters Companion and is mounted on a blue 6 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base.  I added the hashtag words from a scrapbook tag packaging and used a micro gold filigree' tread around the top for the final touch.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
