It's Softpencil Thursday, Friends!

The Softpencil Challenge this week is to make a "Friendship" card using the image "Good Friends".
I LOVE this sweet little image! It was so much fun to color! I was inspired by the colors in my recently purchased "Flower Shower" DP from DCWV's new Spring Stack. The stitching is faux. Doesn't it look real? The yellow flowers were dry embossed, then buttons tied with ribbons were added.

                           Stickles were added for Bling.
Stop by the DT's blogs and see what they've created with this image. I know you'll be inspired! Their links are in my sidebar. 

                       EXCITING NEWS!
