We are movin’ right along with the color challenge’s each week – we are already on week #11 of the Utah Diva’s Color Challenge. Here is our inspiration for this week:

For this week I decided to play with these colors in My Digital Studio.  Stampin’ Up! has recently release several new project options for My Digital Studio so I decided to create something using the new calendar size that was added.  Here is some more information about the recent update: The My Digital Studio version 1.0.5 update is now available. With this latest update, you will receive functionality upgrades as well as access to seven new professional print output products–including a trifold card, a journal, a 5.5″ x 6.5″ calendar with easel, and four postcards.

My birthday is in the month of March and these look like March colors to me so I created that month’s page for this weeks color challenge.  Here is the result:

I started with the template in My Digital Studio – the designer template for a calendar already has the name of the month and all the numbers lined up in the right place for you.  I did go in and change the color and opacity for all the numbers and the title – they are Chocolate Chip at 100%.  I added a Background paper which is Very Vanilla Textured card stock.  I used three digital stamp brush sets to decorate the page – Upsy Daisy, Baroque Motifs, For All You Do.

The butterflies are all the same image but I changed the sizes, colors and turned them in different directions.  The flowers from Upsy Daisy set are flipped and the opacity is reduced and I added drop shadows on them.  I highlighted St. Patricks day in Pear Pizzazz and my birthday in Rose Red.  I also went back and added some Rose Red Grosgrain Ribbon and a Bow – since our inspiration picture had that on the dress I thought I would dress up my calendar page the same way!

From now until November 30th you can purchase My Digital Studio at 50% off during the Online Extravaganza – plus some of the digital downloads are also on sale.  Just visit my online store on my website.  Or you can sign up as a new demonstrator with the Digital+ Starter Kit for half-price.  If you want to know more about either of these let me know.

Now it is your turn to play with these colors – then go to the UDI blog and add your creation to the linky section.
