Reading with Gratitude

Reading with Gratitude -  I hope that everyone had a fabulous Christmas. All of my children and grandchildren were here and we had a wonderful time together.

Todays challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is a recipe. I used 1 image/bow, 2 different colors of wire and 3 corner dies.

My image is Magazine Margie by  our sponsor, Sassy Studio Designs. She was actually a Freebie that I got a while back, but had never colored.

I colored Margie with Copics and can you believe that I did not use Sktickles? I know. Horror. LOL

My papers are Making Memories Just Chillin. I like the funky colors in this pad.

My corners are a SB die, that I added a gemstone to in each of 3 corners.

The flowers are Prima with another gemstone in the center. The leaf is also Prima. The wire was coiled around a paintbrush handle.

The bow was tied with my Bow Easy.
