NZSU MDS Challenge 1

Hi there

Over at the NZSU blog Callena has given us a challenge to use Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoise on a page or card.  The twist with this challenge is that we must use MDS (the new digital programme from Stampin Up) to create our project.  I have combined this challenge with one we have on our demo forum to create a page saying how many more sleeps it is till Convention.  Today was my day with only 25 more sleeps to go - I can't wait as this will be my first convention (very exciting).  So what do you think of my second attempt at MDS?  I've gone with a fun layout.

I really enjoyed creating this page and learnt a few things like:
- the 'bubble' had the pointy bit (not sure what it's really called!) on the other side so used the mirror function to get it on the side I wanted.
- how to group the scallop circle and the photo of Yellowbear together as one image so that when I moved it around it stayed as a whole
- creating the banner I used a square punch which I elongated to the size I wanted then added the Dotted Scallop Border Punch top and bottom but only showing one row of the 'dots'.  To do this you send it to the back of the image and then group so that it also moves as one

I am loving MDS and can't wait to try more things.

Hope the rest of you weekend goes well.  I'll try and get back tomorrow to show some masculine cards I've made recently using the Best Dad Ever set.
