Welcome to another fortnightly challenge at 

Our challenge this time around is to use a birthstone color.  The one I chose is emerald for the month of May.  It's not my birthstone but it is my favorite.  

Today we are sponsored by one of my favorite designers

 Saturated Canary

Kristen is so fabulously talented!  She has so many beautiful images and so much hair.  I just love all the hair.  The image I picked is called Whisper.  She's so cute!  I've colored her with Copic and Whisper Strokes Markers.  I've also added some Stickles and Glossy Accents to give her that extra shine.  The sketch I used comes from Creative Inspirations. 

The papers come from Bazzill, The Paper Co. and some generics.  I used a Spellbinders die cut, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Queen & Co. pearls & flora from Petaloo.

Please head over to Crafting When We Can and check out all the other beautiful creations made by the design team.  Hope to see you in the challenge!

By the way my sister has some amazing candy on her blog.  Go check it out right here!
