I Can Do Blonde

I'm not very technically minded so I don't use Digi images very often as I have to rely on the patience of my children. I'm hoping someone out there in blogland can help me with the designer of this image,all I know is that it was a freebie image which I managed to download and save but omitted to record where it originated from.

Isn't she fun though carrying her shades and wearing her swimming cozzie,I thought she'd be perfect to use on a card for a 15 year old. I coloured her using Copics,if you're interested on the colours I used to achieve the blonde they were:- YR20,E51,E33 and E35,I used a touch of C1 on top of these just where I wanted a little shadow. I'm really chuffed with the result as I've tried numerous times to achieve blonde but have always ended up with dirty blonde instead of sun kissed. The lace I retrieved from the edge of the sleeve of my daughters school summer dress,she'll need a complete new uniform to start Secondary School next term. The roses have been in my stash for years so thought it was about time I used them.
I'm using this card for several challenges,
Stamp Something ,Flowery challenge,
Wild Orchid Challenge 1,Say it with flowers,
OSAAT Challenge 22,Digi image,
Hopefully I'll get a few more lovely visitors and maybe even some more followers as several of these challenges are new for me.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend,
thanks for stopping by,
I've just gone through my photo files and discovered that the image is called Summer Lovin Maddie by Stamp Insanity.
