A little bit of Blue

Hi xx

Over at Digi Choosday we have another lovely challenge this week.

Theme: Blue

The digi stamps is called Octavia Thinking and you can buy her here

Until I joined this design team I never used digital products (except digi stamps) I always thought digi elements wouldn't look nice. How wrong I was. The frame and the background paper are from the Picknix 1 Home Grown collection. I especially love how realistic the frame looks, all I did was print and cut .. simple!! You can buy this collection here

Have fun

The background paper is from My Mind's Eye Love me collection.

I used glassy accent on the hearts to give them dimension and then whilst it was still wet sprinkle them with cosmic shimmer glitter.
