Digistamps4Joy World Cardmaking Day blog hop

Welcome to our World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop. 

You have arrived at my (Ursula's) blog in Roodepoort,  South Africa.
Digistamps4Joy is running a Blog Hop from 4 - 9 October 2011 to celebrate World Cardmaking Day on the 6th October . Each stop in our hop is offering a randomly drawn prize by Digistamps4Joy, of the digistamp used on that blog, so with 12 stops along the way you  stand a chance to win 12 different images, if you win on each blog...
So come on in and meet our fabulous Design Team and enjoy the fun
If you landed at my blog first, you have come in at the end, so I suggest you start at the top which is the Digistamps4Joy blog and work your way through down to my blog. The hop
 order is listed on each blog, so you shouldn't get lost!
                                                 Ursula (that's me, this is the last stop)
Here is my card I made for the DS4J Blog Hop

I made a tent style card with an oval cutout in the front. The image 'girl on swing' was coloured with Aquarelle pencils and Twinkling H2O's., then cut out and suspended  at the top of the oval aperture.
The DP I used on the inside is a lovely garden scene from a paper pack...Country Companions.
On the front is a piece from Joycrafts..Happy Bloc's
I used various Marianne Design dies for the leaves, fence and the label for the sentiment which was computer generated.
The small flowers and leaves are all punch outs, finished off with some bling and pearls.
This is the DS4J image that you could win on my blog.

Wow Ursula, I just love how you have displayed this image in a tent style card. Great job of making such a wonderful scenic card. I love that you have a background picture in behind the image to give it that 3D effect. The whole effect is just gorgeous.
