Natalie Z. *Paselska*

The theme for this weeks challenge is
and we would love to see your fabulous birthday creations using a My Bestie image.
The winner receives a massive $30 gift certificate to spend in store.

Image - Sweet Mary Lou - Coloured in Photoshop
Digital Papers - Flowers after the rain - Sweet shoppe Designs
Marianne Creatable - Anja's leaves 3
Sentiment by me (freebie below)
Flower - scalloped circle dies
Ribbons, diamant√© ribbon slider, gems - Meiflower

The flower is made from tissue paper, I folded a piece of tissue paper up until there were nine layers then used the 3 smallest scalloped circle dies to cut it out (cuts through all nine layers at once, so quick and easy). I layered these up from largest to smallest and pushed a brad through the centre. I then scrunched every layer, one by one, around the centre brad (this takes a bit of time), and then opened them out again to make the flower. I was trying to make something similar to the flowers on her headband and waistband, and was quite pleased with the result as it does look similar.

I also changed the colour of the digi stamp to a medium brown then darkened around the eyes and the eyelashes (every girl needs lashings of mascara).

You can find lots of gorgeous Bestie images in store HERE
and don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and check out the rest of my teamies fabulous creations.

You can snag the sentiment circles by clicking on each one to make it larger, then right click and "save as"

Thanks for stopping by,
have a lovely day,
