Hi everyone on this beautiful sunny morning!
Here is my first DT card for Dare You To Digi Stamp Friday ChallengeHope you will join us this week - the theme is Red, White and Blue.  In case you hadn't heard, it's World Cup fever time (!)  but your choice of digi image does not necessarily have to be a football one. I have to confess I am not a huge footy fan, but I found this fabulous image called
"No Girls Allowed" at Squigglefly, and I love it. Maybe having a son and a daughter, and two grandsons with sisters, it rang a few bells!!
I have used Copics to colour the image, distressed the edges of the white and red card with scissors, (pity the red card isn't straight!), added a computer-generated sentiment under the Nestie aperture. Circles punched down the edge, with red and blue circles attached to the inside of the card - oh, nearly forgot - a touch of Glamour Dust on Tamara's shoes and belt!!!!
Look forward to seeing what fabulous creations you come up with - in the meantime have a fabulous weekend.
Love and Hugs, Sylvia xxxxx
