it's all about you

Hi everyone! Happy middle of August! I'm SO ready for some cool, crisp fall weather! It's time for another fun challenge over at the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I'm stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #84 - Anything Goes! We're being sponsored this time by Lawn Fawn, Heartfelt Creations and Julia Spiri Digital Stamps! Come play with us!

I chose the absolutely gorgeous 'The Flower Girl' digi from Julia Spiri and what fun she was to color! I went with one of my favorite color combos of green and purple for my girl card. I used two coordinating patterned papers layered on purple cardstock. I paired the digital image with sentiments that could be used for a variety of occasions.


I used my fairly new Spectrum Aqua markers (without water) for the small flowers because they have a fine point end and are much easier to use in small spaces. First time I've used the Aquas and I think I'm gonna like them! I dug through my ribbon stash and found some rockin' purple and green plaid ribbon which I thought went really well with the papers. I'm really loving sequins these days so I added a few of them too! ;)


I stamped the inside sentiment on a plain panel which I decorated with leftover scraps of the striped paper and purple cardstock from the front.
