YOUR SPECIAL DAY ... {DigiStamps4Joy Challenge 136}


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

I have used this beautifully elegant image which you can purchase here .  
I have coloured it in Photoshop CS3 and created 2 cards each slightly different from the other.

The beautiful sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  The design papers and photo corners are from my stash.  I also added some Stickles for a bit of extra sparkle.
The Protea flowers (South Africa's national flower) have been fussy cut and are from one of the Celebr8 12x12"design paper range.

Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog
