Sweet Friend

Sweet FriendHello!! I recently won this image from Conie Fong :)  Braids In My Hair really wowed me when it was first released – but I had so many projects in the works that I never got around to getting it…when I won it, I was more than thrilled, and got right to it :)  I colored her up with my Prismacolor pencils, then sat and looked at the finished product, waiting for inspiration to hit!! Conie has a challenge to use ribbon on her Facebook group, so that was a starting point.  I wanted to do something a bit different with the ribbon, so I made some flowers from a pale yellow grosgrain that I had in my stash.  I stitched some seed pearls and a pink bead to the centers to coordinate with the yellow flowers in the image.  I had ONE pink rose left which was perfect here :)  The fern leaves are cut with a Frantic Stamper die that I just got.  I punched a few little blue blossoms to coordinate with the bow.  Corners were cut with my Cricut (Picturesque), and the butterfly was done using a bargain die that I got off Amazon, great deal, but I waited for forever and a day to receive it.  I stamped a little LDRS sentiment (discontinued) onto a scalloped square (Elegant Edges) with the Cricut, and added a bow from the same ribbon as the flowers.  Some pearls finished this off :)

I’d like to enter this into:
