Vintage Flower Child

     I am completely mad about this image from Nicecrane!  It was the freebie this month from the Progressive Challenge at The Outlawz and I can't  think of a better reason to belong to Outlawz or to keep playing in the Progressive Challenge each month.  :-D  It came from a set called "Flower Children."


     I used my ProMarkers to color the image and used some of my framing dies from Spellbinders to cut and frame her.  The plaid paper is from K & Co. and had been in my stash for way too long.  All the ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I think the flower and butterfly embellies are Recollections but, again, they have been in my stash for a while so I'm not sure.  I added a faint line of stitching beside the ribbon but it doesn't show up very well in the photo.  It was made using a very sharp #4 pencil.

     The last two days, I seem to have been on a 'pink' kick but mostly I was using up scraps from the "leftovers" tub on my desk.  It's time to clear things out and throw away the smallest scraps which I always think I'll use but never do.  I have two photo storage boxes of little scraps which would only work if I cut them into 'inchies' for a patchwork background.

     Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Flowers,a butterfly and pretty young lady, what more could anyone ask for? This came out lovely. Glad you found and used that pretty plaid paper and when I clicked on your photo I could see your stitching very well. It was a nice addition. Enjoy your day.
