Soft Pencil Thursday

This week we were challenged to make a Friendship card using the image of Amy, Michu and Ratiny.  Elizabeth made this because of the many requests she received to turn her logo into a digital image.

I love the soft colors of this paper from K & Company.  I've had it for quite some time and this is the first I've used it (yes, I am a paper addict).  I followed this weeks sketch over at Cupcake Craft Challenge, but rotated it to fit my image ~ another sketch for the keep file. 

The rest of the DT has some wonderful eye candy to share with you as well, so please stop by and visit them (links are on the left of my blog).  We'd love to have you join in on our challenges over at Paper Craft Planet ~ they are every Saturday and not only do you have a head start on the upcoming challenge, you still have until tomorrow night to get in on the current challenge where the lucky winner will receive a $10 voucher to the store.  

In addition to the Cupcake Craft Challenge, I am also entering the following:
Raise the Bar - "Debut Day" - use something brand new and debut it - DP and image
Cupcake Inspiration Challenge - took the soft colors from this and the swirls and flowers
Stamp Scrap and Doodle - "Girly"
The Corrosive Challenge - "Let's Go Digi" - use a digi image
Incy Wincy Designs - "Color Me Wonderful" - use your favorite coloring medium (Copics)
Sophisticat Challenges - "Spring"
A Spoon Full of Sugar - "Lots of Layering"

Have a wonderful day :)
