A little bit about ZlatoenaMy mom and I used to make handmade cards and that's how everything started. I'm last year graphic design student and I have always had to passion to draw and doodle and one day someone came with the idea for digi stamps and .. 3 years since then.. I am creating digital stamps and.. The Cats Pajamas Rubber stamps are producing my designs into real stamps.. and I am as happy as can be.

Prize - 2 Digi Images of the winner's choice!
