TREASURE THE MOMENT {Art by Miran}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Our theme for July is YOUR COUNTRY'S FLAG COLOURS.

I have been playing once again and this time with this gorgeous girl called VICTORIA created by the talented Mi Ran.  She really looks like she is enjoying playing the flute.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase her here.

No surprise then once again, as I stuck to my favourite centre step design.  The flower embellishments have been created with flower punches. She has been coloured with H2O water colour pencils. The sentiment is from my stash.  The design paper (BoBunny), buttons and ribbon are from my stash.
