Card Design: Deedee's Digi of the Month Challenge...June

Progressive Freebie Challenge!
Hey there and a happy Thursday night to you all!  It is time to post my project for the Digi of the Month Challenge taking place over at Deedee's Digis.

In order to enter the progressive challenge, you must either have received the latest image by having participated in the previous month or you can buy the stamp for the current month's challenge.  Everyone who enters and follows the rules is a winner because you automatically get the stamp for the next month's challenge.  Stop by the site and check out the rules for yourself.  Be sure to check out the store while you are there too.  Currently there are a few sets available for free and of course there are some wonderful ones available for purchase in the store.  

As of this month, all customers are now able to download directly, regardless of whether they live in the European Union or not!  So, now there will only be one link to each item.
 
Right now it is time to check out the awesome set participants got to work with this month...


Diver Daniel is such a sweet little guy.  I love that he comes in two different poses and there is even a fish and a mini coral reef included in the set.  All of these elements help to provide such versatility to the sets.  As always, Deedee's sets come with both outline and coloured versions to provide you with even more variety.  If you did not participate in last month's challenge, you can still purchase this set for just $1.25 during the month of June at the store. You can find it HERE.
