So innocent

Sugar Nellie has these gorgeous digital images of girls that are just too perfect.  To me the girls look so innocent that they would never be sassy or naughty and they have perfect hair and their outfits are adorable so you want to get them because they don't look anything like what you know to be real.  All I remember is that when I would try curling my daughter's hair she would want to look in the mirror with each use or the curling iron so it would take FOREVER, and then trying to tell her to hold still and be patient was not an easy task so that it was half flat by the time we would be done.  Oh well, I guess that's why they have these perfect little girls for purchase.
The Challenge for Sugar Nellie is to do something outside your comfort zone.  I used a more traditional background paper and then a little more wild red and tan zebra print which is outside my normal to add the two together especially on a card like this.
