Through the Purple Haze Challenges #26 Team B --- DIGIS AND DIE CUTS

Hey crafty ones! I sure hope you will hop over to Through the Purple Haze Challenges this week as there is a "ginormous" post there for the 26th Challenge. The theme is Digis and Die Cuts.

This week is Team B's chance to showcase digi images from Lacy Sunshine and Pink Gem Designs and beautiful ornamental dies from  Tattered Lace Dies (Designed by Stephanie Weightman).

{Prize is 2 images}

{Prize is 1 ornamental die}

Soooooooo, where do I begin? Well, let's start with the card I did with the Lacy Sunshine image. The image is Desiree Dragonfly and can be found in the online store. I always pick out my background papers first and then color my image to coordinate. I absolutely fell in love with my papers and that adorable image. Here's the finished card and the recipe!
