True Friend

Happy Groundhog Day! That silly rodent says we're going to have 6 more weeks of winter. He should have just stayed in the ground! I'm ready for spring!!! Because I'm ready for spring, I was inclined to use cheery colors on my cards today. That and I received my new Card Maker magazine and it is full of springtime!!

This card is my entry for this week's PaperTake Weekly Challenge. The theme for the week was "Flowers or Hearts". Oh, what a simple theme this is for someone who would add a flower to every project if it would work! I opted to use yellow as my main color and enjoyed coloring yet another one of the Sarah Kay images I received from Heather. Okay, so it's not technically another one...but rather the same one again. Can I help it if I'm in love with this little girl??

I decided to make her a cheery yellow and enjoyed matching her dress with a nice textured yellow cardstock. I pulled out my favorite piece of brown cardstock for the coordinating color and am very happy with my finished project. To add just a bit of sparkle I treated the white flower with a smidge of "Stardust" stickles on each petal. I've been trying very hard to use buttons on a more regular basis, so finding three little brown ones just really balanced this card out. I chose to use a friendship sentiment for this card and pulled out some rub-ons. The tiny words "True Friend" just seem to go with this card. I'm VERY happy with my finished result.
