IB170 Hand-Penned Friend

Hi peeps!  Thursday brings us a new lovely Inspired By inspiration photo:

and here's the optional sketch, which I used this week:

I promised I would be using the new Hand-Penned Petals again, and here it is!  I used some Hand-Penned DSP along with one of the new In Colors, Soft Succulent, and used two more In Colors to watercolor the floral, Pale Papaya and Fresh Freesia:

Instead of using the two-step stamp to color the flowers, I used ink and an aquapainter.  After diecutting the flower, I embellished the circle panel with a couple of black sequins from my stash and a Basic Black sentiment from the Well Written dies:

The Crumb Cake card base was embossed with the Subtle embossing folder before adhering everything together!  Now I hope you'll find some inspiration from our photo this week and play along with us at Inspired By as well! Thanks for visiting today!  

We have an alarm in our driveway that alerts us when someone is driving in.....and it went off at 8:30 in the morning, which is pretty unusual for company!  When I went to look to see who it was, this is what I saw:

The neighbors across the street have a small pond and every spring, two Canada geese build a nest, and I guess they decided to come over for a visit! Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Oh so happy to see these beauties again, LeAnne! LOve the colors, and your design is wonderful!
[when you said alarm, I thought you meant these two were honking! THAT can be alarming!]

So pretty, LeAnne! I always forget about the sketch and you always use it to perfection! I love hearing the Canadian Geese fly over honking away. Did these two honk you a good morning ??!!
