THE MORE YOU PRAISE ... {DigiStamps4Joy May 2018 Challenge}

THE MORE YOU PRAISE ...

Design Team Project for  DS4J's challenge blog
The theme for this month is
ANYTHING GOES + FOR MOM

The image is called DAISY BUCKET
 which I have coloured and added a background to in Photoshop CS3. 
 You can purchase this image here.

The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC . 
I have added the 'Happy Birthday in Photoshop CS3.

The button crochet flowers have been made for me by my SIL.  The design papers are from my stash.  The folded flower embellishments have been made with a flower punch. 
Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog 
and link your Creations to Challenge #148.

Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:

Signing off with a commissioned crocheted chunky single bed blanket, I recently completed.




Thank you for stopping by and all the wonderful uplifting love you leave behind.
