{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #48}

This is another DT Project for a challenge over at DS4J's blog.  The theme for Challenge No.48 is Celebrating Women.  I have created a centre step card using the cute little 'MANDY' and 'FENCE' Digi Stamps from DS4J's shop.  You can find Mandy here and the Fence here.  Mandy was coloured with H2O's.  The flowers were punched with an EK Success Punch.  The design papers are from Basic Grey and FabScraps.

So hop on over to DS4J's blog and link your Celebrating Women creation to Challenge #48.
