Following your dreams...

 ... Isn't that something you think about when you think of Amelia Earheart?? Well, it is for me. What an inspirational woman she was. Never letting those rotten men get in her way and doing what she loved!! Well, as you may have guessed it, today I've chosen ' Amelia' for my inspiration for you all and here she is...

You can find this beauty at Funky Kits here. I've made my own sentiment and am going to use this for a graduation card...I think she quite represents looking to the future! 
The papers I've used are from Basic Grey's Capella line and I've inked up all the edges and used kraft for the base.
When I colored her I got her all done except the cloth on her arm...I knew I wanted a splash of color, just hadn't decided what yet. In placing my flowers I found I really liked this not quite burgandy color and went with it.

Here's a little closer view...I"m thinking there may be a little too much green now, but at least I got that splash of color in and that makes me feel a bit better. The clouds aren't actually that white, I've darkened them a bit, but it's not showing for some reason. Life will go on!

Here are my copics. So proud I've actually been remembering to take the pics lately!

Well that does it for me today! BE sure tp stop by later to see what beautiful creation Anita has come up with for you! As always please feel free to ask if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!


  1. I definitely don't think there is too much green - it looks absolutely right & picks up the flower stems beautifully. The deep red is perfect with this too & I love that lace with those papers - the whole vintage style is brilliant.
