My first DT card for PCJ Challenge

I am so chuffed to be a new design team member for Paper Crafting Journey! I have loved joining in their challenges for the past 6 months so I'm very excited to be a part of their team. 

Their challenge this fortnight is the easiest challenge of all - Anything goes!! Woohoo!! I have used one of the sponsors new digis, isn't she a cutie? This digi is from Elisabeth Bell who I have used her digis on a few of my cards. (See labels at the bottom to see my other E.Bell cards.)

With this stamp, I printed it twice and coloured the hair, teddy and jeans on one image then cut them out carefully to add to the other image which I had coloured the other parts in. This gives it a slightly 3D effect (in person, you may not be able to see it on the photo). I then fussy cut the whole image out and used foam tape so she pops off the card. I hand cut the banner from scraps and then distressed it.

FWAB used:
Jack vine leaves in forest green, silver rhinestones
