While you are there don't forget that for the Month of April we have a store collab with the theme of Mother's Day & Babies which is free with a $10 purchase.

Here's some definitions of sassy, thanks Julye for finding these!

sas•sy 1 (ss)
adj. sas•si•er, sas•si•est
1. Rude and disrespectful; impudent.
2. Lively and spirited; jaunty.
3. Stylish; chic: a sassy little hat.

For my card this week I have used a great digi called Fire by Gingerloft. I felt as an image she was very sassy and wanted to keep to the fiery colours so used reds and oranges throughout.I coloured the image with Promarker and added lots of shading to her hair in different colours of coppery tones. The swirly red paper is Papermania, the glitter embossed paper is by DCWV.

I have added Prima flowers, a star shaped diamante in her hair, bling on the skirt and in the centre of the flowers. The tissue paper flower I am really proud of as it is my first attempt at making my own and it came out much better than I thought it would. I used the 2 smallest sizes in the Nestabilities scalloped circle dies, poke a hole in the centre of the layers and added a small flower shaped brad then just separated the layers and scrunched away until I was happy with the shape. I added some copper and red ink to the edges and attached to the card. I am amazed how easy it was to do yet looks so effective. It's great when you see something in blogland and attempt it for yourself :)

I used sketch #99 from Midnight Madness for the layout. I didn't add a sentiment as I don't think the image really needs it. This is a totally different image for me to use but I am so pleased with how it turned out.

I really enjoyed visiting the blogs last week and seeing the most gorgeous of creations. I hope you will join in with our challenge this week and look forward to passing on some love.
