New Friend Card

This was the inspiration picture for the HEC08 challenge over at Splitcoast. I don't remember a photograph ever being as compellingly "peaceful". I had to make a card to try and capture the feeling. I hope you enjoy my attempt. I also fulfilled the Splitcoast sketch challenge #207.

I used SU Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand and Bravo Burgandy. The ink was Versamark with Silver EP and dazzling diamonds. I added SU ribbon and white pearls. The stamps were from the Unity December KOTM and Su's Fancy Flexible Phrases. Thank you for looking!

Beautiful. How you are able to complete those inspirational challenges escapes me. I am still to this day intimidated by them. One day, one day.
