Digistamps 4 Joy Challenge # 44 - Mid-Challenge Reminder

Good morning and happy Wednesday!  I'm here to let you know you still have one week to enter Digistamps 4 Joy Challenge #44!  Need a reminder of the theme?  It's: 

Happy Anniversary, June Bride of Yesteryear!

What does that mean, you ask?  Well, we want to see vintage Happy Anniversary cards.  Now for the important question...what could you WIN?  Well, a randomly picked entry will win (3) images of your choice from the Digistamps 4 Joy store. (There have been so many awesome new releases lately...I just know there is something for EVERYONE in the store.)  Plus, you'll get a badge.  There will be (2) Runners Up, who will also win a badge.  However, IF you use a Digistamps 4 Joy image, you will also be entered for a second prize...the DT Choice Award!  With that you will win a $10 gift voucher to the store and a badge.  That's right, by using a Digistamps 4 Joy image you are entered to win the randomly picked prize AND the DT Choice Award.  How can you resist?

Since it's the mid-week reminder, I get to show off my creation (along with the rest of Team A).

I used the fabulous Bells & Doves, available here.  For once, I did NOT use Copics to color my image!  (I know, shocking, right?)  I decided my colored pencils and Gamsol fit the vintage theme more, since the colors are softer.  However, I did use a Spica marker in gold to color the bell.  I edged all the papers with Colorbox chalk ink in Chestnut Roan, and I aged the lace with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.  I added a bunch of embellishments because I was planning on entering this card into Sugar Creek Hollow's More is Better challenge. However, I forgot that I was doing the mid-challenge reminder, so I ended up missing the deadline.  Whoops!  Oh well, I'm still happy with how it turned out.  =D  

Looking for more inspiration?  Head on over to the Digistamps 4 Joy challenge blog to check out the rest of Team A's creations.  Remember, you do not have to use a Digistamps 4 Joy image to participate in the challenge.  However, if you do...your project will also be entered for a seperate prize, the DT Choice award!  I hope to see you playing along!

On a sad note, this will be my last post as part of the Digistamps 4 Joy DT.  Due to personal reasons I've had to resign.  I am extremely thankful to the whole DS4J team, especially Jen and Margy, for all the support and fun I've had throughout my tenure on the DT.  I will miss all of them dearly, but hopefully will still be seeing them around Blogland.

Thanks for stopping by!
