Safari Anyone?

Hi YNS friends!!  SO glad to share with you my creation for this week's challenge at YNS!  It's a color inspiration challenge using the colors teal, lime green and pink.  Other than that, it's all up to you!!  I loved this combo because it was just so summery and bright.

I've used the very sweet Safari Fhiona in my design sample.  I colored her with my Copics and paper pieced the band on her hat. 
I dove into my scrap bin and found all of the papers that you see.  Love it when that happens.  I used the itty bitty stars that came out of the center of my MFT Star border you see along the bottom.  I picked them up with a paper piercing tool, dabbed the tiniest bit of Glossy Accents as my glue and arranged them scattered about.  I did the same with a few tiny butterflies trimmed out using the MFT Notched Tab Die-namics accents.
I used an MFT File Tab die-cut to house my sentiment.  
I did a bit of basic stitching and then layered it all together.  I hope you come play along with us at the YNS Challenge Blog or at the SCS Forum!

Thanks so much!
