LIVE INSPIRED {DS4J}

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #84}

Another design team project for our  challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog.  The theme for Challenge No.84 is REAL RIBBON.  Our talented design team member, Antoinette is hosting this challenge.  Thanks Antoinette for choosing this awesome theme for us.

Another centre step design.  I have used the following images from DigiStamps4Joy:
  1. Wisteria Splendour
  2. Drangonfly
A tent card design.  The images have been coloured with H2O pencils.   The design papers are from FabScraps and the ribbon is from my stash.

Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #84.



I am proud to say that this time the sentiment has been designed by yours truly in Photoshop.  Hope you like it, as I am sharing it here for you to download and perhaps use on your craft projects.  Just click on the image and then right click on the image and save it to your computer.  Would love to hear from you, should you use it.  



Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
Signing off with a photo of my niece's two little boys:


Thank you for all your friendly visits here.

Creative hugs

Desire, you were living inspired as you created this stunning card. Actually, in creating the wonderful sentiment I feel you were sharing something very personal to yourself and your ethos to life. Lovely sentiment, that is so encouraging to others.
