A friend indeed

Today we are sponsoring the Paper Playtime digital challenge!  I hope you can play along for a chance to win a Doodle Pantry gift coupon!
The theme is "Friends", so check it out over at Paper Playtime.

Below is what I made for the "Friends" theme using the Chamomile.   However, I woke today just not feeling the mojo though.  Hope it's at least a little inspiring in some way!
I do like the yellow/green colors... nice and springy.  I wanted to splash in that bit of pink from the paper on the base, but it didn't quite give the effect I was hoping, haha!  I still like the card.


SUPPLIES:
  • Image: Chamomile
  • CS/PAPER: 90 lb. watercolor paper, white, CDS fresh papaya, CDS spring leaf, K&Co SusanWinget Spring blossom Mat pack
  • INK: printer, tombow markers 177, 990, 991, SU markers wild wasabi, marina mist
  • ACCENTS/TOOLS: waterbrush, spellbinders circles dies, Crealies Creative Shapes 12 die, PTI new leaf ribbon, Basic grey buttons, glue dots, Su dimensionals, sewing machine
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can play along in the  Paper Playtime challenge this week!

    FALLING ANTS (available in outlines and color separately or together)
    This set was a special request from a friend who wanted a special image of the ants for her boss's Thanksgiving cards this year.  She needs to get a pretty good head start on them, which is why they are released this month. I decided that these ants riding the leaves could also double for spring for a more versatile set too.
