Mo's Challenge # 171

Another "Anything Goes"

You just gotta love a challenge that's this easy! I love it when I get to do
 whatever I want with no restrictions!

I love "Mummu,"so when I saw this new image, I had to have it! Here she is
 gathering the bounty of her rose garden.

I couldn't resist adding some 'real' faux roses to her bouquet! I just poked  small holes where I wanted to place the flowers and pulled the wires through to the back of the image panel.

Her dress is paper-pieced using a smaller scale of the digital background paper.
That's one ofthe reasons I love digital paper! Just print out the pattern on a lightweight paper, feed it through the printer again, and print the image on top.
Then you just cut out the parts you need and paste it on to your colored image! Fun!

Images: "Mummu's Roses" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital sentiment from TLC

Tools: Copics, White gel pen

Papers: SU! Melon Mambo and Celery, Neenah white, Digital DP

Embellishments: Pearl cabochons, Satin ribbon, Roses from WOC, Hat pin, Beads, Dragonfly charm

Now it's your turn to make something wonderful and enter it in Mo's Challenge for a chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil! She gives out one GC for every 25 entries, so get your friends to enter, too!
