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!
