DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY : CHALLENGE #44 : "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY"

THIS POST IS 'sticky' AND WILL REMAIN AT THE TOP OF MY BLOG.  
SCROLL DOWN TO SEE NEWER POSTS ...

Our theme at DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY  this week is  
"Happy Anniversary, June Bride of Yesteryear" 
 and the challenge is to make a Happy Anniversary Card.

This is my inspiration for you - a kraft tag in a vintage themed card:

 I printed the image onto kraft cardstock and coloured using alcohol markers and a white gel pen for the highlighting.  

The image I used is called "Fleur de Lis" available in the digistamps4joy.co.za store HERE

The fabulous green DP with the vintage prints is from Fabscraps, an awesome South African Company that has a wonderful range of goodies for the papercrafter!  Their papers are to die for - certainly my favourite South Africa paper supplier!  I LOVE using their products!

I made a pictorial explanation of how I put my card together : 

and show you some detail pics of it:
