{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #78}

Another design team project for our bi-weekly challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog.  The theme for Challenge No.78 is EMBOSSING DRY OR WET.  Our talented design team member, Pam is hosting this challenge.  Thanks Pam for choosing this awesome theme for us this fortnight.

Another centre step design.  I have used the MISTERI AS DOROTHY image from DigiStamps4Joy and you can find it here

The flourishes were stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps and fussy cut.  The sentiment is from the talented and very generous Lisa from Decosse Dynamite Doodles.  The image has been coloured with Copics.  The folded flower was created with squares and my tutorial for it can be found here.

Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #78.



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 a photo I took from the summit of Cathedral peak, one of the highest mountain peaks in South Africa.
