My Friday Feature

I am actually doing these posts at the same time, but I want Hollyanne's post to stand on it's own. She does her own work so it deserves her own post.

As I said, Hollyanne and I decided pink and brown was the color combo of choice! I created a card to play along with three different challenges.


The first challenge is for Friday Sketchers. This is a great sketch, super easy to use and I pretty much took it literally.

The second challenge is for Dare U2 Digi Friday challenge where of course, you have to use a digi-image, but the challenge is distressing. That is a challenge for me. That technique has several different interpretations and mine is with ink. As my daughter would say, I made it look old.

The third challenge is for The Digi-Shack which is using flowers on your card. I used TDS' cherry blossom image that I absolutely love.

Just a quick note about the butterfly. The image is from Unity Stamps, Bevy of Butterflies set. I like to watch stamping tutorials on You Tube and one of my favorite set of videos is from Hero Arts. I found a super easy slider card which you've seen me do a couple of times. Well, in that very same video, she features how to emboss on transparency. So, I finally decided to try it! It's sooo cool!!!

I hope you all like my card. Thank you for stopping by today! Happy Friday to you, I hope your weekend holds everything you need it to be. Don't forget the tomorrow is the day for Anyaversary!! I am so excited.
