{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #83}

Another design team project for our  challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog.  The theme for Challenge No.83 is GLITTER AND SPARKLE.  Our talented design team member, Angela is hosting this challenge.  Thanks Angela for choosing this awesome theme for us.

Another centre step design.  I have used the following image from DigiStamps4Joy:
  1. Cherry Bonsai
Another centre step design.  The image has been coloured with Copics and the flowers created with a Fold It Swirls template.  The bling is from my stash and the design papers from We R Memory Keepers (Antique Chic).  The sentiment is a freebie from the talented and generous Sharon (A Piece of Heart).

Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #83.




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 of a sunflower in a friend;s garden.
