A Simply Sassy Sneak Peak

Happy Wedneday friends.  I have a little sneak peak to share with you today. 

This sweet girl is called "Love Letters".  I think she's beautiful and she was so much fun to color.  I used my copics and colored pencils to color this image.  I  also tried something new ... instead of making a card, I made a little keepsake box.  I painted a paper mache box with cream acrylic paint and added some pretty Melissa Frances dp and some lace.  I made a little lace rosette and added a flower to the center, and I added some flourishes made with my Memory Box die.  In the other corner I added some WOC mulberry roses, punched leaves, and pearls. 

We are having sneak peeks all week over on the Simply Sassy Blog so be sure to pop over and check out the beautiful work by the dt.  Please mark your calendar because we're having a blog hop this Saturday and we'll be showing you all the new Simply Sassy images.  All these images will be available Saturday at Funky Kits

Thank you for stopping by.
