DECEMBER {DigiStamps4Joy Sponsorship}

{DigiStamps4Joy DS4J: SPONSORSHIP}

DigiStamps4Joy is sponsoring the current challenge over at Come and Get It Challenges. Their theme is Snow People. I am so honoured to be a guest designer on behalf of DS4J for this challenge at Come and Get It.

I have used used the following DigiStamps4Joy images for my card:

FIRST SNOW

The folded snowflakes have been created with scalloped square punches. The images have been coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The design papers, bling, photo turns and brads are from my stash.

    51. Did you use acetate for one of the layers? That's actually a great idea for some of the bottom layers to be shown. In general we tend to cover up lots of beautiful DPs,,,
