Beautiful -- for DS4J

It's Sunday, and there are once again fabulous new releases at DigiStamps4Joy.  The design team was given a choice of 3 to work with this week.  I wish I would have had time to make projects with all 3.  Each digi is FABuLouS!  Today, I chose to work with 'My Ballgown'.

Isn't this a great digi?
You will find it in the DigiStamps4Joy store.  New today!

I sized the digi to just over 4 inches, and colored it with Copic markers, then fussy cut it.  I used 2 Spellbinders Gold dies to frame it with, and CTMH Pear and Hollyhock cardstock.  The sentiment is a Close To My Heart retired stamp, and the designer paper is also retired from CTMH.  There's a bit of crocheted lace behind the die cut labels, and some 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon in lemon-lime from the new LG Bundle. The flowers are from Recollections.  They are white, daubed with CTMH Hollyhock ink.
Here's a closeup of the colored image:

I can see this image colored in so many possible combinations.  So fun!
Speaking of fun, have you heard about the celebration at DigiStamps4Joy?

The 100th challenge starts Sept. 3 and so does the month-long celebration.  Join us that day for the start of it all with a blog hop.  This design team is uber talented, so the hop is going to be an event!  And, of course, there are lots of prizes.  I'll be giving away a $10 gift certificate to the DigiStamps4Joy store to one lucky commenter. See you at the celebration!
