Simply Sassy New Release Blog Hop

Hello all and welcome to our Simply Sassy for Sugar Nellie New Release Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Anita's blog then you're on the right track if you've just happened upon my blog and want to start at the begining please go here to the Simply Sassy DT blog for the complete blog list.

If you follow the Simply Sassy DT blog you know we've been giving you some sneaks this week and this new set of stamps is nothing short of spectacular!! Today I am showcasing...




 .....'Butterflies & Pigtails' and I Looovvveee her!! I think this is how I see my daughter in a few years. Anyway, my card ended up being much more simple than I'd envisioned as I was going to make a wonderful pop-up but alas, hubby's post op(eye surgery) has not been as easy going as expected so I've not had the time I thought I would to make it. I hope you like this all the same.



The background I've used here is a mixture of two of Make it Crafty's Digital Images that I blended together and moved around to get the look I was after. This was a little time consuming, but I'm quite happy with the end result. It is colored with copics for the rainbow and flowers and chalks for the rest. 
 As for our pretty little girl she doesn't naturally have freckles, but I thought she needed some so she got a few(again probably honing in on how I think my DD will look,lol) and for whatever reason she needed to be REALLY blond, lol (she's very smart though). I love pink and white together so I left her dress at that





Some close-ups: A better view of the background, now you can see ALL the stickles ...there's tons and I used 3 different kinds: stardust, crystal, & diamond, each stratgically placed, the flowers,  and  I've also placed the top layer on 1/8" pop-up dots.

That will do it for me. Hope I didn't blabber too long. Next on your hop will be Tracy. Don't forget you can get all these beauties today at Funky Kits and there's also a special going if you buy the whole set. Jump on over here if you wanna check that out!


Thanks for hopping along with us today and have a great day!

Hiya Autumn,

This sooooo ultra cute!
Love the colours - the colouring is FAB!

She looks as if she belongs in the scene - Reminds me of THE CARE BEARS!

Remember them - with Rainbows and stars etc on their little tummies?

Pink & white are so gorgeous together and are so suited to this image!

LOVE IT ALL - great background!

Hope hubby feels better soon!

Take care
Big Hugs

Paula said...

I love your background & the way you have used your Stickles to highlight certain areas - that rainbow is terrific & your placing of the image perfect in relation to the rest. She reminds me of Alice in Wonderland the way you have coloured her - I suppose it should be Wizard of Ox but no - Alice for me. Hope your husband's recovery is smoother & he makes a good recovery.
Take care of yourself too.
