Blessing To Me (August Guest Designer for Deedee's Digis!)

I am so excited to be August's guest designer for Deedee's Digis! Deedee is such a sweet and talented lady and I am so blessed to be able to work with her fabulous images. For my card today I used the super sweet Cup Of Joy image and played along with this week's challenge of vintage style. I tried a little something new for the first time also, crocheting on my card. I used some rather thick yarn, but I think it works with this image:) I think next time I'll use my super thin thread yarn instead. It was really easy to do acutally, I just punched some holes in the bottom of my cardstock and crocheted through them. The sweet tea cup image is colored with Copic markers and I added lots of pearls and some more lace. If you haven't hopped on over to Deedee's Digi store you should, and while you're there pick up an image or two:) Have a blessed day!
