Pretty Papers at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge


"Sassy Sally and Her Autumn Leaves" is one of the new digital images at Sassy Cheryl's and I loved this from the moment I saw her as I knew it would be wonderful to paper paint! I first colored Sally's face and hair on the printed image on white cardstock and then I cut out all of the printed paper images of her clothes and the leaves and glued them on the white cardstock. I outlined all of the images with a blue marker and when that was complete, I cut out the individual cardstock/paper images and glued them to the printed image on the cloud background paper - then to the black card. It's no secret - I LOVE detail cutting! :<)

I have entered this card into the current challenge at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge - "Pretty Papers" - and if you want to see all of the beautiful inspiration go to I never cease to be amazed at the many different interpretations of a theme - the creativity of the human mind is awesome!

Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog! Wishing you a very creative day!

Hi Barbara,
I just got done reading your very sweet comments on my blog and you most certainly may use my phrase regarding heat. I did take a sneak peek into next week's forecast and almost fell out of my chair. High in the low 80's!!!! I hope it's not a tease...I can't wait.
Your cards and posts have been so much fun to admire. I'm your latest follower.
Hugs and stay cool...
