Another gorgeous Sugar Nellie image - this little lovely is called Faith and I adore her hat! This is a bit of a different colour combo for me - but I had the lovely lemon backing paper from Summer Driggs and wanted to use it, so thought I would couple it with a lilac colour cheme for a change.
The yellow cardstock is from DCWV and blended in well with Summer's 'Golden Sunshine' paper. I colured Faith with promarkers (and am a bit annoyed cos I was real proud of my shading and blending and it hasn't shown up very well on the photo!), cut her out with a nestie and then matted her on to some lilac paper. I used the same lilac paper for the trellis (Martha Stewart) and the organza ribbon was the last of my stash which was just about enough to make into the bow.  The flourishes were a present from Maureen (who has a new toy and is busy cutting out all sorts of things - lol) and I coloured them with a promarker to tone in with the colour scheme. The butterfly, flowers, pearls, heart and gems were all from my stash.
Oh and almost forgot.................. LOOK.............................. I stitched again!! LOL
