A GIRL SHOULD BE 2 THINGS {ArtByMiran}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

I have been playing with these gorgeous Flapper Girls created by the talented Mi Ran.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  Also visit Mi Ran's blog {Art by Miran} here.  You can purchase these Flapper Girls here and here.

No surprise then once again, as I stuck to my favourite centre step design.  The folded embellishments have been created by folding circle punch-outs.  The girls have been coloured with Copics and the pearls, button and raffia are from my stash. The sentiment is a freebie from Paulette{Create with TLC} and has been coloured with dry chalks. The design papers are from Making Memories and BoBunny.



I would love to enter this into the following challenges:
Thank you for all your wonderful visits here. Leaving you with a photo I took over the 2013 festive season, of my niece Heidi's three little bambinos.
