FASHION FADES ...

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #75}

Another design team project for our bi-weekly challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog.  The theme for Challenge No.75 is 60's INSPIRATION.  Our talented design team member, Riette is hosting this challenge.  Thanks Riette for choosing this awesome theme for us this fortnight.

Another centre step design.  I have used the 3D FLOWER SET from DigiStamps4Joy and you can find it here. I have also used the TRENDY TWO digi and you can find it here.

The images and sentiment have been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The design papers are from BoBunny. The sentiment was coloured with dry chalks and is a freebie from the wonderful sharing Paulette from  CREATE WITH TLC.  The bling is from Blueberry Bear.

Looking forward to seeing your 60's creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #75.



Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
A big welcome to my new Followers, hope you will enjoy your visits here.  Also thank you to my loyal and faithful followers who always leave such wonderful inspiration here for me to feast on.  Love you all and leaving you with this photo I took of the Jakaranda trees in Pretoria.  They usually start flowering at the end of September.

  89. Really cool card Desíre. You always do monochromatic so well. Love the flowers and the way you blinged them out too.

    Also I just had to share your link with the hubs and my momma to show them that gorgeous pic of the purple flowering trees. We have some trees that will produce a pink blossom but nothing so big or so pretty as the purple ones. Thanks for sharing a little bit of home with us.

  109. Desire,
    The photo of the jacarandas in bloom is beautiful. We have those trees here in Phoenix, AZ USA and they bloom in April or so. This photo caught my eye and I'm going to use it as "background" on my computer. It's too beautiful to put in a folder that I may never look at again; I want to see it every day. Beautiful photography. Hugs, Gail aka Lacey Lassy
