Yellow Haired Beauty

     This engaging image is from The East Wind and it's their monthly freebie for being on the mailing list.  I'm disappointed because the camera really changed the actual colors, turning the polka dot paper nearly olive and the pink hexagon almost coral when in reality the papers more closely match the pink and green in the image coloring.  Ah, well, at least you get the design idea.

I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Weds 2,
adjusted for an upright A2 card.

     The image is colored with ProMarkers, then cut with a lovely die from Spellbinders.  I matted that die cut with an octagon die cut (QuicKutz.)   The dp came from Bo Bunny and Authentique and both the ribbon and the bow have been in my stash forever (more or less.)   I added glitter to the heart on her shirt and to the little petal shapes (discards from the frame cut) next to the sequin and gem in the corners.

     OK, I'm sure you think I'm home playing in my craft room but the truth is that I'm taking time just for myself this long weekend; not answering my phone, not telling anyone where I am, and definitely not posting or reading e-mail.  So if you see something on my blog, it was pre-scheduled.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
