HAVE YOURSELF ... {DigiStamps4Joy November 2018 Challenge}


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

I have used the pre-coloured image LEAF FAIRY
which you can purchase here.  I have added the background in PhotoShop CS3. 

The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC . 

The flat pearls, paper clip and poinsettia ribbon flower are from my stash. The folded flower has been created with punches.  The design papers are from my stash.
Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog
