We are challenged to make a 100% digital birthday card at Digitally Sweet Challenges.
I used two stamps by Sandra Caldwell, a beautiful 'Flowerfield' and an adorable 'Wormie'
These are both colored with copics however I scanned them back into my computer which made them digital.
I used free clipart and my SU (which they do not sell anymore) software.
