Digistamps4Joy is going Red, White and Blue

It’s here….it's finally here…. the day that I post my first ever DT project for Digistamps4Joy! And have we ever got something special planned for you today! 
As most of you probably know, July 4th is Independence Day in the United States, so to celebrate we have been challenged to make a project using the colors Red, White and Blue. Your project doesn’t need to be something celebrating July 4th, just something with the colors Red, White and Blue on it. Now how easy is that?
I was so excited with the image that I got to play with for this challenge. She is called Kimono Girl and she is just gorgeous…well don’t take my word for it, see for yourself!

Was I right or was I right? When I saw her I just knew that I wanted to give her a really beautiful outfit. So I paper pieced her outfit, shoes and the  Chinese lanterns, from Crafty Anne’s, using an incredible origami paper (warning…make sure that the origami paper is of lighter colors or you won’t be able to see what you have to cut out lol). I also took a blue piece of origami paper and paper pieced the tie around her waist.
For the dp behind her I made my own using the lantern and cs from SU. I colored the tops and bottoms of the lanterns with my gold Gelly Roll pen. The base cs is from Bazzil's Wedding line.
Now I’ve told you what the challenge is, but you’re probably wondering if you have to use a Digistamps4Joy image and what about prizes. Well we have some fantasitc prizes to be won. One person will be chosen by to win 3 digital images of their choice from the store! You don't need to use a DS4J image to win this prize, but we would be so excited if you did. And there will also be a DT choice award (this prize can only be won by using a Digistamps4Joy image). This winner will receive a $6 gift voucher! We’ll also be picking 2 more people that we feel deserve to be in our top 3. For all of the rules and to check out the fabulous creations of my teammates,  please head over to the Digistamps4Joy Challenge Blog here.
Hope to see you join in the fun!!
