Friendship

I always intend to get a card made for Merry Monday & the MFT sketch challenges, but I've missed both of them lately.  As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to use my MFT Let it Snowflake dies with felt. Then I saw the MM color combo of pink, green & white and the card came together.  I began by watercoloring a background with my newly acquired Zig markers & brushed it with Shimmer Spritz Frost. Then I colored the MFT Fishnet stencil with the green marker, spritzed with water, randomly removed some of the ink & pressed it on the panel for just a touch of darker green.  The pink felt snowflakes make me happy & hopefully the recipient will like them, too!  Not sure I've ever used this sweet sentiment from MFT Snow Angel which is white embossed on a double vellum flag. Basically a flat card, but still texture & interest. I'm also entering at Virginia's View.  Thanks so much for your encouragement & support--means a lot to me.
