{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: Freebie Friday}

Yippee, its the first Friday of the month again and you know what that means - DS4J has a new freebie which is available for download from the shop. This means that if you would like the freebie, you will have to set up an account in the shop, if you have not done so yet, (free and very easy!) and then add the image to your cart. At checkout it will be FREE. The freebie will be available for 3 days.

This time our talented shop owner, Margy has created this beautiful little SUNFLOWER PIXIE, doesn't she just put a smile on your face and make you feel happy.

I have created a tent card for a change and you can find my tutorial for a tent card here.  I have coloured her with Copics and dry chalks.  The design papers are from BoBunny and the bling is from K&Company and was part of the lovely give away I received from the talented Annie.  The sentiment is a freebie from Cards and Scrap and has been coloured with dry chalks.



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