{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #47}

This is another DT Project for a challenge over at DS4J's blog.  The theme for Challenge No.47 is Stripes & Polka Dots.  I have created centre step card using the 'Protea' Digi Stamp from DS4J's shop.  You can find the Protea here.  The Protea were coloured with H2O's.  The butterflies were stamped with acrylic stamps.

So hop on over to DS4J's blog and link your Thank You creation to Challenge #47.

The sentiment was a free digi from TLC.
