You Are Unforgettable

Hi, everyone! Happy weekend!

I'm here to share a card inspired by the current  My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge. I switched out the square with a circle because... this little image was just crying out for a circle. 

The card below also was inspired by the current CAS-ual Fridays Spring Fever Challenge. When I think of spring, I think of:

  • baby animals;
  • painted toenails, just like this little gal's pink paw nails;
  • soft colors;
  • flowers;
  • and leaves, like the ones that I see in this stencil's design.
Since this little gal is going to a children's hospital, it's gem-sequin-brad-embellishment free. Just paper -- really well attached paper. And, I've gotta say I'm soooo happy with the way this focal point image turned out. Maybe I'm finally getting the hang of coloring.  :)
