“Digistamps 4 Joy was born in July 2010. What began as a “brainwave” developed into a rather successful journey…  Started by Mel M, and with the help of talented artists and fellow South Africans JenLee, Margy, Sam, Laura and Mel herself, Digistamps 4 Joy was soon reaching an international audience.  Digistamps was a rather unheard of and new craft to many South Africans with most only having access to them if they had a credit card.  Mel and Jen started brainstorming and soon came up with the idea of starting an online store entirely accessible to all South Africans.  Mel having the experience in web and graphic design, and Jen being a wonderful illustrator work together as a team and produce most of the images many people around the world have come to know and love.  Among the many images, you’re sure to find something you like… from fun and whimsical to cute and funny right through to serious and beautiful. Every month a new freebie is available on the website.”
 Prize includes
12 x 6”x6” sheets patterned and plain paper
2 x midi stencils
4 x packs different pearls
2 x pkts assorted gems
2 x pts of 10 brads
2 x paper pieced embellishments
Thank you so much for your wonderful Prize Mel :)

Here is this week's Sketch and my Design Team Creation:

I used K&Co.  Flora and Fauna papers as my base for my image. I colored my image with my watercolor pencils. I accented the image vines with some diamond glaze to give them more dimension but it's terribly hard to see in the picture. The lace and rhinestone trims where from my snippets drawer. The vine along the right and top left are pieces of a Prima blossom branch in pistachio. The Rose buds are from my favorite wild orchid crafts. Now don't forget to go check out all the other fabulous cards from the design team at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Thanks for stopping By Have a Happy Crafty Day!
