YOUNG AT HEART {Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge}

Birthday Challenge
FRESH BREWED DESIGNS

A lovely challenge is currently running over at Fresh Brewed Designs with a BIRTHDAY theme. I have used this beautiful elegant fairy lady called BREEZE, which you can purchase here. Also visit Fresh Brewed Designs' Facebook Page to join in all the fun and surprises, here.

She has been paper pieced with design paper and coloured with Copics.  The design papers, chipboard flowers and flourishes and brads are from my stash. The folded embellishments have been created with circle punches The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.




I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
