{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #88}

Another design team project for our  challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog.  The theme for Challenge No.88 is VINTAGE.  Our talented design team member, Annie is hosting this challenge.  Thanks Annie for choosing this awesome theme for us.

Another centre step design.  I have used the following image from DigiStamps4Joy:
  1. Misteri - Marie Antoinette
Another centre step design.  The image has been coloured with Copics.  The buttons and ribbon are from my stash. The sentiment is from Create with TLC . The flowers were created with punches and so to the decorative black borders.

Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #88.



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.

Creative hugs
