Audrey Inspired



"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." ~Audrey Hepburn
 
 
Beautiful, elegant, classic and a touch of modern is what I think of when Audrey Hepburn is mentioned. For some reason, the Skipping Stones Design set Sentiment Frames totally speaks Audrey to me and worked perfectly for the current sketch, designed by Amy, for the challenge at Skipping Stones Design. I would really like to see what you come up with for the sketch! Try it out!
