HOLIDAY CHEER {DS4J Sunday New Releases}

{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 image which is called  Lil-Jill Urchin sunflower

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 buttons, bow, metal tags and brads are from my stash.  The image has been coloured with Copics.  The crochet flowers have been made for me by a very dear friend and I used a bit of Stickles on the wood frame and holly leaves for some Xmas bling.   The wood frame with hollies is from Crafty Secrets and can be purchased here.

The HOLIDAY CHEER sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.

I love the holly frame, and appreciate that you linked it to our Creating with Vintage Christmas CD, but sadly, that frame is not the holly frame on the CD. I hope you'll create something using a Crafty Secrets image so that you can be eligible to win the prize. If you need it, you can use the free download from the blog! Thanks again for joining us!
