Cozy Rest Day

Hi Everyone and to my lovely new follower, hope you enjoy your stay. 
Deedee's Digis has a Progressive Challenge where you buy your first digi and as long as you enter the challenges you get a free kit every month. This is the free digi from May's "Dads Day Off" with the window and cat from another of Deedee's kits "Open Window." You get outline images in the kit (as well as ready coloured images) so that you can colour or paper piece your images, as I have done here.

Haven't participated in this month's challenge? You can still purchase this set for just $1.25 this month at our shop. You can get it here if you are a resident of the European Union, or get it here if you are NOT a resident of the EU.

I designed all this in PS, including making the fireplace and flames, I used a PS "fringing action" by Atomic Cupcake, for the rug, added my brother's photo to the frame above the mantle, as it's his birthday, printed it all out with a double window frame and sentiment to layer, then added Stickles to the fire, 3D'd the sentiment and it's ready to post.

This is a fab card, I love the scene you've created, lots of detail right down to the reclining handle on the chair and the picture of the recipient over the fireplace. The flames looks great, and I love the cat too ! Thanks for joining in with the Sisters of Craft challenge, good luck and best wishes, Anne DT.
