Sassy Cheryl's Inspired By Nature

I have admired this digi for some time, but did not have the opportunity to purchase it.  Well last week I won a free digi and this week the challenge was "Inspired By Nature", so I call that a perfect fit!  I chose my color scheme from a piece of DP I wanted to use, but ended up not even using it.  I am pleased with the end results though.  I really like the softness of these colors. 

If you have been following my blog, you will know that I always see a story in the digis I color.  This one reminds me of a young love that starts out as friends and grows into true love as adults  The tree reminded me of the book The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.    I used to love reading it to my Grans when they were small.  Sorry Marlene, I got a little sappy there.

Colored it with my Copics, used some Paper Glaze for her shoes, Meadow Flower Soft for the grass.  The Kraft  and the Celery are both from Stampin Up.  The aqua dot DP is from Bo Bunny.  The sentiment is SU Sale A Bration Punch Bunch.  (Got it free last month, whoo hoo for me)  Popped on some paper roses, added some ribbon and safety pinned the sentiment onto the ribbon.

If you would like to get this digi, click here and you can make it yours.  Color it up, paste it on some pretty paper. and enter it in the Inspired By Nature Challenge this week.  Hope to see you there and thanks for popping in and checking out my goodies.
