Thinking of you...


I found myself in the mood to color up a portrait style image yesterday because I really just wanted to focus on some hair and skin coloring. So I got on the computer and scrolled through my digis until I came across this beauty from A Day For Daisies. She was a free digi that I got off the ADFD blog a couple years ago and I think her name is Buds in Her Hair, though I can't find her in the ADFD store. The Princess Leia style hair buns looked like a fun challenge to tackle. What a pretty little princess she became with her crown of flowers and I even added in a lacy ruff to hint at the fancy gown she must be wearing. I love the old Making Memories paper that I found in my stash, it really added to the fairy tale look that I was going for on this card. I'm so happy with how it all came together. :)
