Be Yourself

Hello everyone!
How is your week so far?

My week has been good, housework all done :^).
Today, I had a nice lunch visit with a friend and managed to finish a card.
I am a slow crafter, it usually takes me a few days to finish a card as
I usually do it in stages in between my chores and work.

I enjoy coloring Saturated Canary images lately.
I think they each has its own distinct character and attitude,
it's fun to bring out their personality.

I thought I would do a monochromatic card and color the hair pink.
The LO is from The Sketchy Challenges.

This image is called Honey.  I have colored her with DIs.
I added some shabby pink and shabby white frantage.


The DPs are Stampin'Up, Prima, and Basic Grey.
Dies are Spellbinders, Magnolia Doohickey, La La Land and Tim Holtz.
Sentiment is an old Stampin'up one and I hand wrote "be yourself".

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
 Baby pink sweetheart blossom, WOC pale pink trellis rose 35mm,
K&G beaded ivory/cream berries, ivory button twine,
seam binding ribbon, Rebecca vintage cluny lace.

Hope you like this card.
Thanks so much for stopping by.


I would like to enter this card in the following fabulous challenges:
