What a beautiful Winter Sydney day its going to be .Looks like the sun is out to take the chill off the air. But i'm not quite ready to go outside just yet and woke up early to finish my card for this challenge.
I'm not really good with DSP and tend to use it like a background stamp and i really didn't want to do the old patchwork top note for this challenge either. If you want to have a go please visit Just add ink

I have stamped image onto the DSP and painfully cut out her dress rather than just colour her dress in for added effect. I think it worked well
