AFTER WOMEN {Art by Miran}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

I have been playing once again with this gorgeous GIRL created by the talented Mi Ran.  She really looks like she is at peace amongst the beautiful lillies.  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 this beautiful girl, LILLIAN here.

No surprise then once again, as I stuck to my favourite centre step design.  The folded embellishments have been created with a {Doing Life} T69 Template which can be purchased here.  She has been coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from Create with TLC and has been coloured with dry chalks and punched out using a scalloped square punch. The dotty design paper is from Fabscraps and the other design paper, buttons and pearls are from my stash.
