You've got a friend

If your looking for my Virginia's View challenge post, please scroll down.

Hey y'all! It's my second post of the day! And this time I'm back because we have a brand new challenge up at Poppy Sketches!

Okay, so here's my take!

So, let me be honest for a minute. I have to sort of laugh at myself. When making this card, I was so focused on incorporating the sponsor, that I forgot about not only about the colors, but the sketch itself! lol Leave it to me, to do something like that! Though, once I came to my senses, everything fell into place. ;)

I started with my fame and adding some light pink color to it. Which, I used a gelato with a little bit of water and just smeared it around (using a piece of foam and my finger). After that, I stamped on some flowers using a light pink ink. Once done, I added my sentiment in black. Then, added a little piece of red scalloped paper underneath. To finish things off, I added a piece of off white/neutral color burlap under my frame. And a top strip of pink cardstock with a mini clothespin, to tie everything together. So, what you think?!!...

Be sure to swing on over to Poppy Sketches and see all the DT creations! And I sure hope you'll join us?!!...Hope to see you there! :)

Thanks for stopping by, again!
Enjoy your day!
