Letter to a Friend

I got some brand spankin' new goodies in the mail yesterday from SCACD and just HAD to play!  Here is the end result using Letter to a Friend from The Spring Sampler 2011 drawn by Elisabeth Bell exclusively for SCACD.



I started with a sketch, which I promtly flipped and changed the circle to an oval, then colored my image.  When putting it together, I grabbed the patterned paper paper from the Prima Botanical collection.  True, I colored the image originally for another paper, but when the Prima arrived, it was soooooooooooo perfect I just had to change!  The flower is one of the new Prima 2011 flowers and it so much cooler in person than I thought it would be.  The pearls in the top left corner were created with my Viva Decor Pearl Pen.  I the sketch they were on the other side, but I moved them because I thought it created better balance.

Challenges:
Pile It On #8 - Childhood Dreams
Cupcake Inspiration #100- photo
Sweetest Thing Sunday Sketch #106- Sketch
