The Best Things are Friends

Hi again!  I'm sure you are getting sick of me by now.  I don't know exactly how I ended up with so many posts on the same day, but please bear with me. Things will get back to normal soon, I promise! I'm back to share the card I made for Day 4 of my Featured Designer stint at Jackson's Digital Expressions.

Today I am featuring "Bridge Ladies":


I started with a card base of SU Certainly Celery and layered with patterned papers from the Bo Bunny Olivia Pad.  The image is Bridge Ladies from Fine Arts by Robert Jackson.  You can find it in the Friends section of Roberts store here. I printed it on Copic X-Press It Blending Card and colored with my Copics.  I added a bit of Stickles to their jewelry for some sparkle.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A triple loop bow of matching seam binding finished up my card.

My card is also for the Color Throwdown #200 (colors) and Sweet Sketch Wednesday #162 (sketch).

Here is the colors CTD color inspiration:


Here is SSW-162:


Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work!  I truly appreciate your visits!  Have a great day and a great weekend, too!
