A friendly card


I have a nice bright card to share with you today - a friendship/ friend's birthday sort of a card.

I made it for another of the
Sweet Shoppe Community challenges - I'm going to try and do lots of them, to help get me into a better rhythm of making cards and some digital layouts. This particular challenge was set by Andrea (aka Geordie Girl): use a brush pack from the store and add your own colour with crayons, pencils or paint and use the finished product in a card, tag, bag etc.

I used some floral brushes: some as they were intended, one to represent the sun and the petals of another as raindrops. I coloured the images with my trusty Dovecraft chalks.

I hope you like my finished card!
