A digital card for Carrdvarks Challenge

I am so blessed to know Linda (see here) through Hero Arts Flickr back in Spring. To me, she reminds me of Diane Lane in movie "Under the Tuscan Sun". Linda's new life in Italy is like an adventure of her own. This is what Linda wrote about herself : "I'm your not-so-typical LA girl who took the plunge and moved to the Tuscan hills of Italy! Now pursuing a freelance life of designing, illustrator and becoming a working artist full-time." Linda has been designing her products and has a shop in Etsy (here) and has her on-line store at Zazzle (here). I was given this beautiful digital image that she created.

So I tried my best to make this LOVELY digital stamp image shine!

I am entering this card for the Carrdvarks challenge see (here).

Thank you, Linda, for creating these incredible images as they are so FUN to work with!! Linda has some free downloadable Christmas list (here) and many goodies in her sites. Do check it out when you have a chance!

What a beautiful image of the girl, good luck with the digital challenge, you are rocking it big time!! I LOVED Under the Tuscan Sun, one of my favorite chick flicks, Virginia!! I've always admired Diane Lane, what a classy actress!

Oh Virginia! You are so talented and I am honored that you used my little illustration for your card. Beautifully colored - I really love that you added the pattern to the clothes with the dots of colors...yay! Your designs are always so clever and cute...thank you for sharing and mentioning me - I really do appreciate it so much. Life in Italy is definitely different...but I'm taking it all in as much as possible... :P
