CLASSIC BIRTHDAY {Fresh Brewed Designs - Ribbon or Twine Challenge}

Ribbon and Twine Challenge
FRESH BREWED DESIGNS

A lovely challenge is currently running over at Fresh Brewed Designs which is USE RIBBON and/or TWINE. I have used this beautiful elegant lady called SPRING LADY, which you can purchase here. Also visit Fresh Brewed Designs' Facebook Page to join in all the fun and surprises, here.

She has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks.  The flowers have been created with a flower punch. The design papers, crochet flowers and photo corners are from my stash. The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.
