S2GSC31 - Count Your Blessings!

It's time once again for the Shirley's 2 Girls Twisted Thursday sketch challenge. I hope you're all ready for some fun, fun, fun!!

Here's the sketch for this week, and the twist is to include something soft in your design - Fun Flock, felt, Flower Soft, velvet, anything you can think of that fits the bill will work!

The image that I got to work with this week is a brand new image called "Pilgrims (SG 309)." I colored the image with my Copics, and for a change, I'm pretty happy with the end result. I had a blast with this layout. I wanted the focus to be on the image, so I used subtle elements. The bow is a substitute for the circle in the sketch, and you can see that I used Flower Soft as my twist element. Don't you just love "creative interpretation?" LOL

I know you want to play along with us this week - you know you do, too. Well, all you have to do is create a card using this week's sketch (don't forget the twist!), and then click on the blinkie below - that'll take you right to Mr. Linky (as well as all the rules and regulations of playing along) where you need to upload a link to your project. Oh, and if you want some amazing and instant-gratification digi images - check out the Digi Images section in the Shirley's 2 Girls store. Cute stuff, I tell ya!!
