JOY {Color It Create It Show It Off January 2017 Challenge}

{Wishing you Double the JOY this Christmas}

The theme for the month of January at
My Besties
Colour It! Create It! Show It Off! Challenge

Here is my design team project for My Besties Colour It! Create It! Show It off! using this super adorable little girl dressed so festively from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.

The flowers have been created with punches and the crochet flowers has once again been made for me by a very dear friend. The brads and design papers are from my stash.  The image is a pre-coloured image from Sherri.  The folded scallop corners have been created with a scallop square punch.

The sentiment is from
Paulette {Create with TLC}.
