This is one of those images that you 'recognise' when you first see it.  When my daughter lets her hair grow long, it looks just like this, and I am SO envious!

The image is called Dazzling Darina.  I have coloured the image with markers and used a Poppy Crafts stitched edge die to cut her out.  I've used the same set for the sentiment tag and offset papers.

 The offset paper is from the Wild Rose Studio Bella paper pack, and the rest of my papers are from the 13@rts Vintage Summer paper pack.  The sentiment is an SC Design stamp.

I've tucked some cheesecloth behind the floral paper and added Petaloo flowers and a few pearls.

I didn't have full access to my craft room for a few weeks, as we had guests staying with us and everything was a little crazy.  All I did get to do was colour a few images, and then set them aside for later use.  This was one of the images, and my plan for the card completely changed in the intervening days.  I think the delay was a good thing, because I'm far happier with how this turned out than my original plan would have.

We share loads of inspiration using Digi Doodle Studios images in our Facebook group, so if you'd like to see more, be sure to visit us there.

You could also head directly to the store to see more of these beautiful images.
