Simply Rapunzel

Hello friends!  I hope you've had a wonderful week so far.  I have a new Simply Sassy to share with you today.

This is Rapunzel.  Isn't she a beauty?  She was a blast to color, especially with that long, luscious hair.  Her hair reminds me of my high school days.  I had long, thick hair with some natural waves in it.  Of course, I did everything under the sun to make it as straight as a stick lol!  OK, enough blabbering.  I colored this cutie with copics and colored pencils.  I distressed the edge of my papers and added some lace and a ribbon.  I made a rosette using my lace an added a little prima flower.  Some pearls and a butterfly finish off my card.  Have you noticed I've been using my new My Mind's Eye papers, instead of hoarding them?  That's a big step for me lol!

You can find Rapunzel and all the other sassy girls over at Funky Kits.  If you would like to see some beautiful designs using these stamps, go check out the Simply Sassy Blog.
