FFC #19 "Women's Friendship Day"

Hello my bloggy friends!
 Welcome to another Funday Friday Challenge.

Kenny K Digital Stamps

 So make sure to play along this week~
Starts: Friday, September 27th 12:00AM
Ends: Friday, October 4th 6:00PM
(central time)
 Here is what I created for this challenge:
I used this  adorable Simone digi from Kenny K and colored her in using my Derwent Inktense Colored pencils. I did a lot of shading especially on her jeans to give it a more realistic look. I fussy cut her out and popped her up on some foam tape. My actual card is a standard A2 card. My card base was made with some white Bazzill CS. The patterned papers are from a paper pad I got from Walmart called "Doilies". I cut one paper into one inch strips and adhered that to the base of the card. I used some chocolate twine to wrap around the strips to add more dimension and texture. I tied off a bow in the top corner with the twine. My sentiment is from an old CTMH stamp set called "True Friends" and is framed in using Emma's Stitched Mini Frame Die from My Creative Time. To finish off the card, I added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the big flower is from my stash. I added some Blue Skies Sparkle Lightz to the centers of my flowers and one on the frame I then added some cute stick pins. Below is a picture of the inside using another CTMH Sentiment. That's it for me!
