Pulled this SU set back off from the shelf.  I tried putting it away, but decided this sweet little bird image from it just had to be colored.


Some more fun textures here with the ridged button, the distressed edges and the grosgrain ribbon.


AND.. the Flower Soft.  Just a tiny bit of it, but isn’t it pretty!  Love.


(Oh and I didn’t have any of the special Flower Soft glue, so I just used some Elmer’s.  Seemed to work just fine.) Smiley.Yes1Ani
