“Geek is Chic”- Violet Vintage by Saturated Canary

  Just wanted to stop by to share a card I made for all those going back to school this week! Teachers and students alike are all getting their “school” on and shopping for new books and looks as they get back to all that “fun” stuff like getting out of bed early, studying for tests, and the dreaded of all things… having so much homework!!   This card shares my view that being smart is not only cool, it is sexy!  With that in mind, I colored up “Violet Vintage” by Saturated Canary.

  “Violet Vintage” is colored with copic markers (colors listed below) and embellished with Glamour Dust and some Stampin Up rhinestones for buttons on her dress. I just realized her name and the colors I chose match.. well, well, well.. talk about the power of suggestion!
