Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #86 (and more)

Good morning!  I hope you had a great weekend!  We had a great time with our friends here and I sure was sad to when I had to send them off this morning.  I am already looking forward to the next time we can all get together.  Anyway, I'm dropping in to share the card I made for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #86 - "A Recipe For Friendship".  Dawn was the hostess and we were to be inspired by the following:

"A Recipe for Friendship"

Take two people with common interests,
Mix together with love and understanding,
Stir in a sense of humor and a lot of compassion,
Bake for a lifetime...
and enjoy the fruits of your labor knowing that you both have made a remarkable concoction that will last forever!

We were to create a card with a Mo's image and at least one element from this "recipe". I chose the "forever friendship" part.

My card is also for Card Positioning Systems Sketch #222 and the current Copic coloring challenge on Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom,which was to color brunette hair.

Here is the CPS sketch:

Here is my card for the challenges:

I started with a card base of GKD Red Hot and layered with patterned papers from the Basic Grey Hello Luscious collection.  For the friendship recipe, I chose Mo's BBBFA - Best, Best, Best Friends Forever.  I think this is just the cutest image!  You can find it here. I colored the girlfriends with Copic markers and hihglighted here and there with Spica pens.  I made them both brunette's for Suzanne's challenge.  Some coordinating ribbon finished it off.

That's it for me for now. Thanks for dropping by and have a great day!
