Learning something new

I have been playing with digital images for over a year now but I keep learning new things.  I found out from my awesome DT Sisters the difference between a JPG and a PNG file is that the PNG can be layered transparently.  Really simple thing to do in Word, I actually have 3 images layered up here, the Shabby Houndstooth paperOld Paper set and the Cute Easter set.
I printed the torn page twice and cut it out so I could give it more dimension and I ran some Cotton Candy Stickles around the edge also.  The tag was printed in Word and cut with Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio Shapeabilities.  The card is a 5 x 7.  Well it's Thursday and you know that means Lindsay has something special and free on her blog The Frugal Crafter.  Stop by the Design Team's blogs also to see their gorgeous work.  I really admire these gals, they are always getting published and winning challenges, go see for yourself it is an awesome group.   
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
