I chose a sketch and created it in both a male and female version. Come back tomorrow for the male version.
The female version is pastel colors and has quite a bit going on. The purple banner lifts up to reveal the message. The flowers were die cut (Tim Holtz's Tattered Flowers) as were the leaves (source forgotten). I inked the edges of the flowers before layering and I also inked the leaves. I added ribbon and gemstones for embellishment.
The patterned paper was adhered to a flat piece of white cardstock before the flags were added.
