SIDE BY SIDE {Art by Miran Showcase}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Our theme for September is DIES and/or PUNCHES.

I have been happily crafting again and this time with this gorgeous girl called LOVING AUTUMN ANNIE created by the talented Mi Ran.  She is really all dressed up nice and snug for winter.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase LOVING AUTUMN ANNIE here.

The folded embellishments have been created with scalloped square punches. She has been coloured with Copics.  The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The design papers and flat pearls are from my stash.
