bling it on

It's been a while. Summer and the kids are home. Family is always first. I still try at nap time to keep on the watch so I don't completely lose myself from the art world.

Krista Smith, who is such an inspiration, sent out a freebie and I've never met a Saturated Canary I didn't like so...had to create. I didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked but I also didn't want to miss an opportunity to enter one of her challenges as I've not done so yet.

Here is the beautiful "fancy"

Hopefully, you can view her and the colors not too blurred. the computer I used to use died. Along with a lot of info but...I digress.
Now, I have to use my laptop, which I love, but I can't tell the clarity of my pics.

Anyway, she is colored in copics, the bottome portion of her dress was masked and versamark glitter pad applied.
Her frame cut of with spellbinders, embossed, then chalked.
hair decorations are swarovski crystals.
Letters of the Sentiment are from Sizzix, frame is edged with a gold emboss.
The lower pink flower is WOC glued onto a mesh pick. the other is from a pack that I can't remember at the moment
Papers are random from stash

I'm keeping it quick cause the little guys are waking up. But I created her for a special occasion. My darling niece is now Sweet 16. Happy Birthday Taryn.

I'm entering her into Krista's challenge at Saturated Canary - Bling it On
