DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY :: NEW RELEASE :: COUNTRY BRIDE

I'd like to share one of the new releases in the Digistamps 4 Joy store today.  This one is one of my own drawings, named "COUNTRY BRIDE". although I must admit when I drew the image I didn't intend to draw a bride at all.  I do think, however, that if you coloured her dress white, she does look like a bride.  Here is my version, of her as a young lady (who is not a bride).




The image is coloured using alcohol markers and a white gel pen. Her dress has a layer of Stickles.  Here is a better look at the image:





Other items from my stash that went into making this card are:

cream CS card base
floral/stripe DP offcut
organza/satin ribbon and bow
metal dove charm
layered organza, paper and sequin flowers
red oval gem at the top of the arch
diecut butterfly with gems embellishments and flower stamen antennae


this is not the only new release today

I would like to add this card to the following challenges
FLUTTERBY WEDNESDAYS, #221, IN WITH THE NEW (my butterfly part of a Christmas gift of embellies I received from a friend)
