“My Friend”

This is a card I did for the Die~namites September Sketch Challenge. The dare was to use orange. I don’t think I have ever used orange as a primary color before. I thought about this one for awhile.

My Friend

It was interesting to even find a stash of orange paper in my collection, But I dug and found some that would work.

My Friend outside

I had the card put together but though I should add some twine to it. I like the added effect of it.

True Friend Inside

“Side by Side or far apart, True Friends live within our Heart.”

Close up of the “Dainty Daisys” die. I used Twinkling H20’s and Inklingz to add color to the die.

Thank you for stopping by today!
