Sweet Sketch Wednesday #56

Good Morning Everyone!!  I am so happy to be back with the sweetest team ever!  I feel like I have been away from Sweet Sketch Wednesday for weeks.  I missed out on welcoming 3 new DT members, one being my dear friend Jackie!  Welcome ladies!!  And welcome readers.  Arlana has a great sketch for us to play with this week and we have a favorite returning sponsor, Bugaboo.  I love love love Jodie's images.

So here's the sketch....




And here's my card...




You remember a few weeks ago for Tuesday Morning Sketches I used a Bugaboo image that were best friends (boys), here's the girl version and as I had created that card for a special friendship, this one is no different.  Hollyanne made a lot of friends at her dance school, they became her family.  One of those special friendships is with a sweet young lady named Lyric.




I should have consulted this picture first when I chose my Copics for skin color.  Knowing that Lyric is an inter-racial child I had it in my mind that her skin color is a bit darker than Hollyanne's.  Well, I'm wrong, so in my card that is Lyric with a tan!

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Pretty in Pink
Paper:  Making Memories Just Chillin' Collection
Copics:  B95, B97, BG01, BG05, BV02, BV04, C8, E00, E02, E33, E37, E53, E57, RV000,
   RV02, RV10, YG63
Tools:  CM Oval cutter
Embellishments:  Mulberry Flowers, Rhinestones (Basics by Kaisercrafts)

Stop on over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday to join in the fun and welcome our new DT Members!  Thank you for visiting me today.
