Sweet Stop Sketch #SSS147 Challenge


I think I've had the Most fun working on this card!! First I started with the Sketch Challenge from Sweet Stop, Worked in the requirements for the Desert Island #25 Challenge featuring a "boy" and added Lots of Embellishments. I used the papers from Got Moxie Sweet ride, The Digi Image is from a wonderful new site for me, Darcys Diaries and I colored it with Copics..I've already been a good customer!  I tied the eclectic group of colored buttons with baker's twine in various colors and unraveled the ends.  Adding Monograms (I love them) and some stars for Bling, I think it sent a messsage:  U R A good friend.  The inside has a liner of the doublesided paper with an insert to write your own sentiments on.
