LIFE IS SWEET ... {ArtByMiran}

{Design Team Project for Art By Miran}

I just could not resist this cool image and I am sure we can all relate to enjoying shopping. She was 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.  You can purchase this image here.

I have coloured her with Copics and dry chalks.  The design papers are from BasicGrey and the buttons are from my stash.    The sentiment is a from Create with TLC.  The shapes around the sentiment and image were created with a {Doing Life} template and can be purchased here.  The flower embellishments have been created with 2" scalloped square punches and here is my tutorial for them.
