SOFTPENCIL ANNIVERSARY BLOG HOP!!


Woo Hoo and welcome to the SOFTPENCIL BLOG HOP in celebration of SOFTPENCIL's 1 year ANNIVERSARY!  The blog hop will run today - Sunday, May 9.  Make sure you visit all the DT members and GDT blogs and leave comments for a chance to win great images!  Each DT member will be offering the chance to win their favorite SOFTPENCIL image that they used in today's blog hop post.  Here is my image that you have a chance to win!    
For the blog hop, you should start at SOFTPENCIL BLOG, you will then visit the following blogs: Cat Darling

and back to SOFTPENCIL BLOG
You'll also want to pay a visit to the SOFTPENCIL SHOP and check out the new design and the new stamps!  Elizabeth has a lot more to come too!!

So, finally, here's my card:)  I chose to use this SUPER CUTE image of Michu and his Mom.  I got the idea to make a circle for their eyes from my friend and fellow DT member Cat Darling - she often leaves parts white to make spots, which are always SOOO ADORABLE, so I decided to use color to make spots/patches.  I really like how it turned out.  Thanks for the inspiration Cat!  I colored the image with Copics and Atyou Spicas and cut using Nesties.  The papers I chose are SU kiwi kiss , Bazzill purple and K & Company DP from Poppyseed collection - I used both sides.  Sentiment is from Hero Arts and reflects our there of Birthday or Anniversary since that's what SOFTPENCIL is celebrating this month.  I used some Stickles near the center of the flower for added effect.  Flower is from Prima.  Paper behind image also cut using nesties and sentiment cut using EK Success punch.

The sketch was chosen from FRIDAY SKETCHERS.  Thanks so much for this AMAZING sketch!!  Have fun on the blog hop everyone!  Don't forget to make sure you visit all the blogs and comment!
