Going Dutch...new releases at DS4J

Good morning friends,
Yesterday was Spring Day here in SA, and it was  lovely, sunny and quite hot...but today a drop in temperature, still sunny but a very cool nip in the air, but definitely still spring with all the blossoms, new green on the trees, the grass starting to turn green, a lovely time of year, and today also marks a special day as it is my DH birthday.

So on to my card for today featuring the new releases over at the Digistamps4Joy store. A feast for the eyes with all the cards made with some of the new images to be seen at Digistamps4Joy The image I was asked to use is '3 Dutch girls' . The image was drawn by Jen Lee, who is of Dutch origin and having Dutch connections myself, this was a good choice.One of my earliest recollections of a concert, in my second year at a Convent school, I did a dance in which I was a little Dutch boy, probably because I was one of the tallest in the class.. OK now back to the present...

 
The image was coloured with distress inks, cut out and mounted on a die cutout. The paper was a freebie from a card magazine.
The corner is a new Joy die, and I just love it. Added 3 ribbons layered and a fence from Marianne Designs with flowers using Nellie Snellen floral punches.
 
Will be entering some challenges with this:
My heart pieces digital stamp blog...Layers, layers, layers
My Mum's Craft shop challenge...All the Threes...3 lots of 3 things, girls, flowers and ribbons
 
Have a great weekend enjoy the day, have fun,
Will see you soon.....Ursula
