Blonde Beauty

Okay, so I absolutely love this stamp from Simply Sassy. She is just so adorable. I just want to pinch her sweet little cheeks. For some reason I have been drawn towards purples lately; so to make it stand out even more I have paired it with green. This is a real fresh yellowish green. Don't you just love how these colors complement each other? 
 Here is the inside of this card, I always have such a hard time doing the inside of cards; but here I did a sentiment and just used some of the design paper from the front of the card. Simple, but it works for me. :)
Here is a close up of my coloring. I felt that Rupunzel just had to have the blonde hair blue eyes look!
Here are the Copic colors I used on my sweet Rupunzel.
If you know me at all, you would know that I love to try new things....Here I have a coil rose flower that I made using a small piece of the same design paper used on the card. You can find tons of tutorials on youtube on how to make this flower; I watched so many that I cannot give credit to only one person. I inked up the edges with Distressed Ink Dusty Concord just so that it had a bit of purple on it. The leaf I also did myself, using a scallop cirle puch I cut a slit one one end and folded it a little on itself to get a bit of dimension.Then I inked it with Shabby Shutters Distressed Ink and used Copic marker G82 to make some suttle vein lines on it. I think it came out very pretty.....just right for this rose. Last I also wanted to add some sparkle to this card with a stick pin with some crystal beads from my jewelry making stash.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
icopic Challeng: #30 Blonde Hair
Simon Says Challenge: Sparkle and Shine

Have an awesome day!
