Sunbathing Granny - No, it's not me!

Sunbathing Granny has definitely got style!
Freshly Brewed Designs has their month long challenge up and running!

2 Patterned Papers
2 Embellishments
2 Shapes

Grab an image/stamp and get busy!


Isn't she awesome!  The papers are all from my scrap drawer, including the polka dot that I paper pieced on granny (my first attempt at paper piecing!)  The flourish (shape 1) is a Marianne die and the ovals (shape 2) are Spellbinders.  The flowers are handmade using fiskar punches.  The image is colored with copic markers and the sponging is done with memento inks.  Finished off with some ribbon and liquid pearls on the sentiment and in the centers of the flowers. 
I hope I can pull this off, this well, when I become a 'granny'.  LOL
