Just Us Girls


It's color week with Just Us Girls and Sue is our hostess this week.  She picked Purple, Navy and Green.  I though of Halloween with these colors and made this:


This is from a kit called Bride of Frank from Unity Stamp Co.  I used Copics to color her in.  The background green paper is from Michael's Recollection line and the embossing is a Tim Holtz Embossing folder.   I also used the tiny attacher to actually attach her to the background but also thought the staples would be perfect.
