You're So Special!

Good evening, I am back with another challenge. This one is for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Isn't this image the cutest. I feel in love with her when I first saw her and knew I had to have her. The challenge for this week was to do paper piecing. I paper pieced her overalls and bows with some paper from a pack of DCWV called Old World. The sentiment also comes with the image. It is stamped with Scarlet Jewel ink. Then I colored the rest of her with my copics. For the background paper I used a pack from Making Memories (I believe). My daughter and found it on sale very cheap when we went shopping before the holidays. I love this color and paired ti with PTI's Scarlet Jewel. The heart lace punch is from Martha Stewart. I actually layered two together to give them a little bit of dimension. The ribbon is some I had in my stash and thought it worked perfectly. The pearls are some I bought at Michaels. I had these little button brads that I have had for ages so not sure where I actually bought them. I just thought they would be a great accent on her overalls.

Well that is about it for me today,
Have a great evening or day whichever time you are reading this!
Thanks for stopping by,

This is great. I love the buttons on her overalls. They struck me the second I saw them.
The paper is making memories.
