Sassy Studio Designs Relay Challenge

Good Afternoon!! This morning before church I was checking the blogs I follow and came across the Sassy Studio Designs Blog. I usually get their Friday Freebies but this post was for a relay challenge. you can click on the link above to find out the full details. I haven't created anything with their digis before (frankly coloring in skin tones and hair scares me). But I thought why not give this challenge a try. We got a free image and had to use it on our card with the theme "Friendship". the image is on their blog and you have 2 days to use it and then you are emailed another image to use and have to another two days to use that and so forth(there are 4 challenges in total meaning 4 free images). I got to work on my card before church and just finished it now. I wanted to post this as soon as possible to give everyone of you the chance to play along.

My idea for the card came from Creations By PINKE. She had a post up this morning with a video of how to make this style of card.

What I Used:
Sassy Studio Design : Free Digi
Spellbinders Nestabilites: Big Scalloped Oval SM
Prismacolor Water Color Pencils
Prismacolor Colourless Blender
Martha Stewart Border Punch: Traditional Scallop
K Andrew Designs Art Stamps: Winged Things/ Positive Thoughts
Memento Ink
3 Girl JAM: Crinkle Ribbon Holly Berry

I am really happy with the way the image turned out. I decided to paper piece the dress which was fun!! Not too sure who I am going to give this card to but I will be making more of these styles of cards in the future.
I will be back tomorrow with another card for another challenge and as soon as I get the next free image from Sassy Studio Designs I will have another card to share.

Have A Great Day!!

God Bless!
