Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy my creation for the release!  I wanted to create a project again that completely shows off this gorgeous little country loving gal and add just a few little extras that could be used for inspiration, like I did with my Picked Sweet project.  Her hair needed to be simply light enough to show off the ring of flowers and still look kissed by the sun.  The butterflies with the crackle paint and gloss have that little bit of glitter needed to finish off the effect.  I trimmed off the curves on the bag and punched some matching flowers in to add some texture and hand rolled some Shape EZ swirl flowers in matching bazzill then distressed with Ranger for the final touches.  Each little butterfly has it's gem and makes for a perfect gift bag for anyone!  The whole project after coloring was about 30 minutes, the coloring was about 1 1/2 hours and was a great deal of fun from start to finish!


INGREDIENTS:
Elizabeth Bell image "Sun Kissed" available at Whimsy Stamps
Shape EZ Rolled Bag and Swirl Flower by TLC at Whimsy

 INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile. 

Albert Einstein
