Live Out Loud

Oh how I wish I could be on the beach with this beauty from Saturated Canary! We're still in the "almost-spring" stage here in Illinois, we have a nice day here and there and then it goes back to being chilly. Mother Nature does not understand that Ashley has spring fever! It's in the 50's this week.. I hope that means we're about to transition into full blown spring. 

This beach babe is "Cali Girl" from Saturated Canary - I just love her hair! Papers are from My Mind's Eye and the card is 5.5" by 5.5" The sentiment is of course from Whimsical Deigns.

These flowers were originally a pale yellow, but I colored them with my Copics so they better matched the paper. I used the same colors as I used for her hair - Y13, Y15, Y19, - and added a touch of Yellow Stickles to the centers. 

I used some 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon and pearls from my stash as accents on the card. 

Close-up of her hair! The image is also distressed with Stormy Sky Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.

This created was created for our new flower challenge over at Whimsical Designs! Create any project using flowers for your chance to win your choice of 2 digital images from Saturated Canary. :) Who wouldn't want to win some of these beauties?!
