HAPPY BIRTHDAY {DigiStamps4Joy August 2018 Challenge}


Design Team Project for  DS4J's challenge blog
The theme for this month is

I have used PATCHWORK COUNTY 1 for the main image which I coloured in PhotoShop CS3 and HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS a precoloured image for the sentiment background. 
 You can purchase the images here and here.

The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC . 

The crochet flower has been made for me by a very special frined and the folder flower has been created with square punch-outs.  The design papers, brad and buttons are from my stash.
Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog
