MERRY CHRISTMAS {DigiStamps4Joy New Release Sunday}

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: NEW RELEASES}

A design team project for our  new releases over at DS4J's shop this Sunday.  I have used this cute and fun image created by Margy the owner of DigiStamps4Joy. The image is called   It's Time

Hop over to DS4J's blog and have a look at the gorgeous creations  my talented design team mates have created with some of the wonderful new release images.

The design papers, jewel stars and brads are from my stash.  The image and sentiment has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks.  The circle embellishments have been created with circle punches and I used a bit of Stickles on the embellishments and image for some Xmas bling. 

The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.
