Fall Pocahontas

Happy Thursday! It the first Thursday of November. The weather has changed here in Pennsylvania.  It now feels like fall. Being that it's Thursday, it's time for a new Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge (#254) at Sassy Studio Designs.  This week's challenge is a sketch challenge.

Here is my take on the sketch.


Stuff I Used:
Image-Pocahontas Honey digital by Sassy Studio Designs
(this image will be part of tomorrow's Flashback Friday at SSD and available at a discount price)
Colored with Copics
Skin-E00, E11
Lips-R30, R32
Hair-E35, E25, E27
Dress-E31, E33
Necklace-YR07, Y26
DP-DCWV Modern Meadow stack
Cardstock-Recollections Spice Market pack 
Hot off the press Leather paper
Darice Animal Print Tape orange 
Darice Fall Accents silk leaves
Embossing folder-Darice Feathers on the side folder

I popped up the image on homemade tan foam squares.  I added a smaller image and more DP and embossed leather paper on the inside.

It was fun working with a sketch this week.  Do you ever get held up making a project because you can't figure out a layout?  I do sometimes.  I hope you join in the DTBST challenge this week and also pick up the Pocahontas Honey image tomorrow for the Flashback Friday.
