First Digi Stamp Card!!

I have seen all of the beautiful work of digi stamps on a lot of the blogs I am following and was frankly intimidated!!  But I found this AWESOME group called Crafters Digital Art Center that had some videos and helpful information.  Then I started looking for digi stamps to practice on, so of course I was looking for FREE ones! (lol)  The CDAC had a video that directed me to the Operation Write Home which has a Stars and Stripes Blog that has free digi stamps from Angel artists.  So I found an artist on this site that had a link to her own blog called Sliekje digi Stamps . She has beautiful drawings and I found the cutest little girl playing in the sand and it fit perfectly with several challenges I was looking to do so I printed it, colored it and you see the result above.  In addition to Sliekje's digi stamp, I used CTMH chalks, tombow blender pen,
CTMH Summer fun time wood mounted stamps, CTMH markers, The Paper Studio kraft paper, CTMH Best Friends scrapbook pack paper, and Colorblok paper.  The following challenges were entered with this card:

                    Cowgirl's Sunday Challenge : Sketch
                    Sentimental Sundays : Summertime
                    The Spotted Chick : Kraft paper
                    Stamp Something : Summer
