Best Friends

I was the hostess this week for the Doubledog Dare Challenge I do with a group of friends on Split Coast. My challenge was to use this cute free Digi Image from Two Scoops Rice Designs to use on their card. Rennae has offered it free on her blog for April. I used this weeks fun MojoMonday Sketch for my card.


I had to make the card big (5x5) to accomodate the size of the image. I used Art glitter on the popped up butterfly. For the back panel on the sketch - I just used a cut out Nestability scalloped square instead of a solid panel. I used Labels Four Nestability for the sentiment and an EK Success punch for the scrolly edge. I colored the image with Prismacolor markers.


You can play along with our Doubledog Dare Challenges - just post your card in your Split Coast Gallery and put DDC in the keywords. You can see all the DDC cards here.


Thanks so much for coming by today!! I'm off to eat my supper!

Great card! Perfect for the template and very appealing! I'm flattered that you visited my blogspot today and left me a sweet comment - I'm sure you noticed that I love your blog enough to copy-cat the template for the layouts! I'm a "green girl" so the sage color calls to me. Your photo of the arch is so comforting, in some way. I enjoy your blog daily and you were one of those who inspired me to start trying it! - thank you!
