Little Pixie Fancy Pants

Hello Fellow Crafters and Followers,

Here today sharing another sweet Sherri Baldy/My Besties image. The image I decided to play with is 'Little Pixie Fancy Pants'. I think I went a little crazy last month when I found Sherri Baldy/My Besties images were 50% off at her Etsy Shop.  I bought about 10 if not close to it chipping away at my wishlist. I tell you my list just got bigger again. This particular Little Pixie Fancy Pants image is part of Sherri Baldy's "Fancy Pants" series which has just been added several new precious images the past few days of August. Not to mention a couple of new 3D Deco kits that were added. I want to color and play with them all. I need to start selling my cards.
As I was going through my Design papers I found this beautiful purple hyacinth with green polkadots background by 3 Birds Design Paper.   I decided I wanted to work a 3D look with the flowers behind my image so I fuzzy cut some of the specific  flowers then cut some of the frilled edges and glued then down and/or pop-dot them to meet my design needs.  I think she is a little sunshine cutie among the flowers. On another note I so desperately trying to get better at coloring hair. I can't afford those wonderful classes they offer so I try looking at Youtube Videos but I can't seem to get it to soak in as quick as I want. I guess some people just have it and it takes me a lot more practice before it clicks. Anyway I am pleased at this turnout.

My sentiment is from JustRite Stamps a really old retired one but I love it. My metal decorated bling embellishment is from my stash of on sale goodies I bought at Michael's.
