JUST WANTED TO SAY ...
{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #45}

10 days to go to our Knysna Forest Marathon on 14 July and butterflies have started to do their flutterby's.

Here is my DT Project for our next challenge over at DS4J's blog .  The theme for Challenge No.45 is Use Black, White and One Other Colour (Except Skin Tones).  I have created an Easel Card using this lovely 'Zebra' Digi Stamp from DS4J's shop.  You can find the Zebra here.  The Zebra tiles were coloured with H2O's.  Oh, and before I forget, can anyone spot the design oops on the card?



Hope you will all play along this week and we cant wait to see what you create with our theme. So hop on over to DS4J's blog and link your creation to Challenge #45.

The sentiment is a free digi download from Create with TLC, but here it is.  Just right click on it and save it to your computer:

  6. Really awesome card Desire. I love your design. I think those up side down eyes are like this on purpose. They make to look in center of the card. And up side down paper with text is super cool on the card too :)
    A really great card in beautiful colours!
    Thank you so much for sharing your card with us at Digi Makeover Challenge - hope to see you back again :)

  8. Desire,
    What an incredible card with such an exotic appearance and layout. I love the design here and placement of the zebra and the little red tabs and the fact it's an easel card! I have no idea where there could be a design error on here..I think it's wonderful and makes a great masculine card!

    Thank you so much for playing along with us at Top Tip Tuesday!

  25. Desire,
    Such a stunning creation! I love the fact that it is an easel card too. (So much better to put it on display for everyone to see!) I see no mistakes unless the upside down text in the middle section is what you are talking about...I think that it looks perfect that way tho and don't you know "there are no mistakes...just creativity"!
    Hugs!!!
