If I had a flower...




Hello - I'm playing for the first time at the InStyle Stamps June Sketch Challenge. I'm also playing over at the Color Throwdown #98 and at Paper Sundaes Challenge #23 - Pretty as a Princess.

I used the InStyle stamp Ava Holding Balloons for this one...of course, she is now holding flowers because the sentiment from Unity Stamp's Inside & Out set gave me the inspiration to do so!
I love the colors they chose this week at the Color Throwdown...blush blossom, chocolate chip and mellow moss...one of my favorite color combinations! She is stamped with ColorBox Chestnut Roan and colored with copics!

I used my Spellbinders Labels One to cut her out and for the mat too - that's Basic Grey Eva paper on her skirt and as a mat. Behind all that is a piece of moss colored paper that has been embossed with the Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy embossing folder. The edges are all inked up with ColorBox Chestnut Roan and the sentiment was stamped with it too! Petaloo and Prima flowers became Ava's balloons and they are dotted with some Recollections pearls and a little bling. I glittered up her wings and finished it off with a little ribbon peeking from behind the sweet sentiment.

I hope you like it...thanks for stopping by!
