Sassy Graduation for Sassy Studio Designs Progressive Challenge

After people decided to share the free images that Lindsay from Sassy Studio Designs was providing over at our Paper Craft Planet Group on Pinterest and everywhere else the social media goes these days,  she made a decision as an artist to discontinue sharing them.  It was really sad because those who used it responsibly had a blast with them and we had some great challenges and saw some fabulous work.  After some serious consideration, we are excited to announce that our Sassy Studio Designs Paper Craft Planet group is going to host a Progressive Challenge!  We're really excited about it and hope you'll pop on over and request the image and play along! You can find all the details at the group here.  Just join our group, request the image and come play along!  

The theme for this first challenge is "You Did It, Happy Graduation!" and our first image is Sassy Graduation.  Love her and here's my take on her:

She's so much fun!  She's colored with copics and a couple of Spectrum Noir Markers.  I added stickles on her gown and hat and some Diamond Glaze on the yoke of her gown.  The pearls are from Hero Arts and the top and bottom flowers are from Recollections and the middle one is handmade.  The papers are from Authentique and the Kraft card stock is from Stampin Up and the yellow is from Co'redination.  I used my Martha Stewart punch for the branches.

Doesn't she have the prettiest face?  All full of hope and dreams!

Here's a couple of side views so you can see the dimensions of the flowers.

I plan on entering her in the following challenges:

Clear It Out - Anything goes, must use stash items 2 or more designers papers
Deep Ocean Challenge - Let's Sparkle
Love to Scrap - Anything goes
Cards In Envy - Sketch

See that middle flower?  I'm going to be doing a tutorial over at our PCP Group on how to make them!  So make sure to stop on over, join the group if you don't already belong, and have some great fun!
