{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #52}

This is another DT Project for a challenge over at DS4J's blog.  The theme for Challenge No.52 is YOU'RE TAGGED (create a tag or use a tag on your card).  I have created a another centre step card using the SALLY SUNSHINE Digi Stamp from the DS4J's shop, isn't she adorable.
