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 used image #126 for my card, and colored the sweetie with my SN markers.  I used some individual alphabet stamps for the sentiment, to give it more of a casual, playful feel.  The background is a piece of cute star paper that I had in my stash..I added a strip of blue, one of the tons of strips that I have from trimming 12 x 12″ paper down to make envelopes!  I used another strip of yellow, to die cut the stars with a Frantic Stamper border die. I snipped the border into a few pieces, to make it ‘work’.  I added a few baubles that I made from melting plastic pony beads, and this card was done :)
