Hello Friend!

I love taking part in the monthly Docrafts friendship swap, and this month there is an additional twist as we have a sketch to follow, courtesy of my fellow Penny Black lover and bloggy buddy Carol. The optional element of the swap is to follow the sketch AND use some of the colours on it (different shades of the colour are acceptable!!) I used paler pink, yellow and green.

Here is the card I have made for Jackie. I would also like to enter it for the following challenges:

Whiff of Joy Challenge #30, which is Friendship - my main image isn't WOJ but I have used WOJ swirls and sentiment.

Secret Crafter #32, which is Glitter.

I used:
Main image: Daisy & Dandelion "Marshmallow" coloured with watercolour pencils, and the daisy decorated with diamond Stickles , image edged with Colorbox Q ink and stamped with WOJ swirls;
Sentiments: WOJ (front) - I believe this came as an "extra" with the Everyday Sentiments set - can anyone confirm this??; Great Impressions (inside);
Papers: BasicGrey "Two Scoops";
Supplies: image and sentiment cut to shape using new "Peony" nesties; flowers by Papermania & Prima; large spacer from The Hobby House; Doodlebug "sugar coated" sparkly brad; feathers were a birthday RAK from Kaz; pearls from my stash.

Here's the inside ....

Hope Jackie will like this as much as I loved the beautiful card she sent me :-)


  1. Gorgeous card Pauline! Love those papers!
    I used that sentiment on my DC friendship card this month too - I think the set was called 'everyday'...or it may have been called 'useful sayings' definitely didn't come with the swirls...
