Simply Sassy

Hello friends!  Today is my first post as a guest DT for the Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy Design Team Inspiration Blog.     



I used Hippie Chick on my card today.  She was actually the very first Simply Sassy image I saw and I immediately fell in love with her.  I mean, how could you resist, right?  I used copics and colored pencils to color the image.  I added StarDust Stickles to some of the flowers in her hair and added tiny little pearls to the blue flowers in her hair.  I've used Glossy Accents on her lips but I don't think it really shows in the picture.  All of my papers are stitched and distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink.  I added some crocheted lace to my card and also used that to make a flower embellishment.  I added a pearl button to the flower and placed smaller pearls on my punched flowers and the butterfly.  You can find Hippie Chick and all of the gorgeous Simply Sassy stamps over at Funky Kits.



Thank you so much for stopping by today.
