Freebie Friday 3/30/12

Here in the Midwest the weather has psyched us out again. Two weeks ago we were in the 80's but today we are only in the 30's. Right now it is snowing with rain and thunder and lightening! Is Spring here?? Don't worry the freebie from Sassy Studio Designs at Papercraft Planet will surely get you back into the warm weather mood. Today's image is "Chelsea w/chicks. Remember it's only available for 24 hrs so don't miss out.

I colored the image with colored pencils and OMS and paper pieced her dress.  Now that I've learned to paper piece, it has become a very important part of my crafting arsenal! I added embossing w/distressing and used a Nestabilities die cut. I used flowers and buttons from my stash along with CTMH ink. As always the finishing touch is the swirl bling. Isn't the background paper just perfect for Spring?  Thanks for stopping by.
