"Second Hand Rose"

Growing up my parents didn't have much money. My mom could stretch a dollar and make the most of what we had. I often received second-hand clothing. My mom was a master with a needle and thread and she would remake the hand-me-downs into something new for me. So, I instantly feel in love with this image from Krista Smith you can find the image here: 
I colored my image with Copics. I wanted to keep the card very simple. I had a 'creepy cloth' that I found at the local dollar store and tied it into a knot. I thought it gave my card a 'tattered' look. I hope you enjoy this card and that your memories are filled with love and joy! Blessings!
My Song:
Second hand shoes second hand clothes
 they all call her second hand rose
They all think they're pretty smart
 but rose don't have a second hand heart!

My mom was the yard sale Queen. Even had a bumper sticker that said "I brake for yard sales". Love that orange, wonderful coloring on it!
