FABULOUS FREEBIE FRIDAY AT SASSY STUDIO DESIGNS

Is it a fabulous Freebie Friday - YES - you bet!

The FABULOUS FREEBIE today at Sassy Studio Designs is this delightful image called "Preggo Honey"

Isn't she just breathtakingly beautiful!  (I wish I looked this pretty when I was pregnant) But then perhaps her swollen feet are covered .... LOL!  Nevertheless, here is the card I made:





To create my card, I decided to use some song lyrics
from Chris de Burgh, as they seemed appropriate
for a husband to sing to his pregnant wife. 
I printed the image (which I flipped horizontally)
and lyrics onto white cardstock,
and fussy cut her out (on the right hand side).
 I coloured her using alcohol markers and
crystal glitter glue.
The highlights were made using a white gel pen.

 




On the left hand side
 I used a border die
to cut out the scalloped border,
and hand-sewed on
the tiny flower sequins
and seed beads.
