Swinging into the DS4J World Cardmaking Day blog hop

Good morning friends,
At Digistamps4Joy we are having a blog hop to celebrate World Cardmaking Day. This is taking place from 4 - 9 October, and you are invited to join in the fun. All details can be found  HERE.

This is the card that I have made for the hop
The image is called Girl on Swing, and you stand a chance to win this and many others if you join in the 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.

I will be entering the following challenges:
Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge #226..Flowers
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT challenge...Bingo (diecuts, pink gems, butterflies)
Simply Create...Linky Party#5
Joanna Sheen challenge...Down in the garden

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day. Hope to see you soon...Take care
