Life's about Basketball card (The Paper Shelter image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have been busting to colour this image for some time now as I love her sassiness and sportiness. I cropped the image before printing so that it was more of a portrait shot. You can find this image at The Paper Shelter. I bought the basketball embellies recently at a craft fair so was happy to get the chance to use them.
