FLOWER POWER {Art by Mi Ran}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Our theme for June is RIBBON and PEARLS.

I have been playing once again and this time with this gorgeous girl called ANNABELLE by the talented Mi Ran.  She really looks like she has stepped out of THE 60's flower power era.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase ANNABELLE here.

I stuck to my favourite centre step design.  The flower embellishments have been created with punches. She has been coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from Create with TLC. The shape around her and the sentiment has been created with the {Doing Life} T66 Template and can be purchased here. The design papers are from BasicGrey.   The buttons, ribbon and pearls are from my stash.



I would like to venture over to the following challenges with this:

· 613 Avenue Create - ATG and/or Optional Twist
