A Friend Like You is a Special Tweet!

I absolutely love the High Hopes dragons. They are all so adorable! Who knew a dragon could be that cute?! Every month High Hopes has a special where stamps are 25% off. This month's special is Lenny's Love Me Nots, Special Tweet saying, and Lg Ribbon/Rose 2 pc. set. You can purchase the set and see a couple more cards created by the design team using the set here.

I finally got a chance to make my card for the special and it was perfect timing because I used the SCS sketch 202 for my layout. I stamped Lenny and colored him in using copic markers. I then I cut all my layers. I sponged dark chocolate ink along the edges of the heart patterned paper before adding the red stitching.

I added all the layers and used foam adhesive to add my image and the ribbons and roses (after I cut them out). I sketched in the grass with a copic multi-liner pen before coloring.

Since there was stitching showing on the inside of my card from when I stitched the patterned paper to my card base, I decided to line the interior of my card. I cut a piece of pink cardstock slightly smaller than my card. Then, I cut a strip of patterned paper that was the same as that on my card front and stitched it to a piece of dark chocolate cardstock before adding it to my card.
Have a great day!
