Good Friend

So glad it's Thursday...it means the weekend is ALMOST here AND I get to share a Softpencil creation. Our challenge this week was to use the image GOOD FRIEND and make a FRIENDSHIP CARD.


Isn't it such a cute image? I had to color the bird red since my favorite bird is the Northern Cardinal (or red bird as Abby likes to call it). After that I just used colors found in my pattern papers. I couldn't fit everything on the front of the card so I continued on the inside as well

I used TAC's SEEDS OF BLESSINGS for the sayings. It's the set I usually turn to for those perfect friendship sayings. I colored the image with colored pencils and OMS and used scrap papers from my stash. I also used the Stardust Clear Gelly Pen to add some sparkle to the bird's wing, the snail's shell and the front sentiment. It's hard to see that detail in the photo though.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges: Amy R's Friday Sketch - AMYRTFS7 and Paper Sundaes Challenge #14 - No people.

Softpencil's one year anniversary is in MAY and guess what that means - PARTY!! Be sure to be a part of the fun, by joining us on the Paper Craft Planet group...it's going to be a BLAST!! Also, Elizabeth just released some new CA-ute sets that would be perfect for MOTHER'S DAY...check those out plus all her other fantastic images by going HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today - hope your day is a good one :)
