A GIRL SHOULD BE TWO THINGS ...

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #71}

Another design team project for our bi-weekly challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog.  The theme for Challenge No.71 is BUTTON UP SHAPELY.  Our talented Jackie is hosting this challenge.

Another Centre Stepper design on which I have used the following gorgeous images from DigiStamps4Joy:
  1. Twiggy and Twiggy in Winter, you can purchase them here
  2. Set of Buttons, you can purchase here
The images and button embellishments were coloured with Copics. The sentiment was coloured with dry chalks.  The sentiment is a freebie from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The design papers are from FabScraps and BasicGrey.  The Jewel Stones are from Blueberry Bear.





Looking forward to seeing your BUTTON UP SHAPELY creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #71.

Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:

  76. Love the bright colours.

    Oh, oh. Looks like I'm not going to get as much catching up as I'd like as my mouse is dying and there are no batteries upstairs. I'll do as many as I can until it gives up the ghost.
