THINK BELIEVE ACHIEVE {DigiStamps4Joy 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.  The scroll and graduation cap that is with the sentiment on my card are some of the new images released to day and has been designed by the talented Riette. Also 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.

I also used the following image from DigiStamps4Joy:
  1. OWL GRADUATE
The images have been coloured with Copics.  The buttons and FabScraps design papers are from my stash. The sentiment is by the talented LISA from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. The folded embellishments have been created with circle punches.

    20. Happy HAPPY oh-so-very Happy! Desire, this is a wonderful card - I am especially inspired to see the fantasy colors used on your owl. GREAT idea, and the sharp points of the background shapes resemble the ears and beak of an owl, not to mention the graduation cap. The little embellies on the sides make such visual interest, and those darling little buttons look great! I love this graduation card, Desire. I think it is one of my all time favorites! hugs, de
