Kind of Wonderful

It's Sunday, and that means there are new releases at DigiStamps4Joy. There are some spectacular new releases today, so make sure and check out the store!
I love frames!  Add a quick dash of color, stamp a sentiment, add some paper and embellishments, and you have a card.  I chose to work with just such a frame today:


The new digi I used, released today, is called "Flower Circle."  With very little effort, I was able to size it so I could cut it with a Lifestyle Crafts die, and then cut another slightly larger circle with a die one size larger. And, that is the one of the joys of digis -- being able to alter the size to fit my dies, instead of needing to buy more dies to fit my stamps!


I also sized it large enough to use this quote from Close To My Heart, because I really like it. I colored the image with ShinHan Touch Twin markers.
I won the designer paper at a LSS crop night over a year ago and no longer remember who's it is.  Maybe Fancy Pants?  The corregated sheet is from Fancy Pants. 
I got these Skittles a while ago from a friend, but had never used them.  I thought it was time!  Skittles finish off the card.
Don't forget to check out the DigiStamps4Joy blog for other great inspiration using today's new releases!

 I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
D.L. Art Thankful Thursday -- August Linky Party

Path of Positivity -- Possibilities (this quote, for me, is all about possibilities)
