Its time for the SAME BUT DIFFERENT August mid month post at

The design team gets the same image to create with and it usually ends up in so much fun to see what each of us do with the image incorporating our own styles.

Here is my project using this beautiful girl from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.
I am sure you will all agree, that she is just elegantly perched on the gorgeous flower.

The embellishments have been created with punches and the crochet flowers have been made for me by a dear friend. The brads, bling and design papers are from my stash.  The image has been coloured in Photoshop CS3.
