My FIRST Simply Sassy Inspiration Post!

** 2nd post of the day - Please scroll down or click HERE for Peggy's Special Birthday Hop!**

Omgosh, I am so nervous & excited for today! So much so that I procrastinated on my card and JUST NOW FINISHED!!! I had a hard time choosing which stamp to use for my FIRST post as a Simply Sassy Guest Designer - so I finally chose Hippie Love as I've never colored her before and I just love her style - those flowers in her hair as too cute - I also love the braid in her hair. I feel like I'm a hippie at heart, I kinda have that free spirit inside me and I am pretty laid back. I had this Echo Park Summertime Collection already out on my desk so I decided to go with that as the colors matched how I colored perfectly and it's just a happy paper line because I am SOOOO happy to be a Sassy Girl! I got some new goodies yesterday so I just HAD to add strip of Tim Holtz Sketchbook Tissue Tape - I love the butterflies!

I like the way you've picked out the colour of the butterflies in the tissue tape with her hair & also the co-ordinating of the buttons with the patterned paper & the hearts of her bunting.
Hope you've had a good weekend & enjoy the Bank Holiday.
