Alice and Scamp

I've been having a play with the lovely Alice and Scamp digi by Saturated Canary today. This image reminded me so much of my youngest daughter Emma, who is dog crazy ( and a good job too as we have 3!) and so I wanted to make her something a little bit special for her bedroom with it.

I always seem to do girlie stuff in pink and so I decided to step out of the comfort zone and use the most underused colour in my pen collection- green. I've never been a huge fan of green (I think it stems back to my school days when I had to wear a bottle green uniform- yuk!) but I found some Papermania papers I liked in my drawer, and coloured her using soft minty tones to tie in with that, and I think with the blonde hair she turned out rather prettily.

I had a box frame sitting in my cupboard that I painted and stamped on, and set Alice inside, with some lovely flowers, beads and die cuts. I used the sentiment 'best friends' as it sums up the bond Emma has with our own dogs perfectly!

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
