The Two Twos

Mo, err, I mean ... Bronte and Bella are hosting their first ever challenge and since "perple" is their favorite color, the challenge was to create a card using any amount of purple.

I fudged a little ... instead of a card, I created a picture to frame for a friend at work. We are sharing something very special! Janet's daughter and my daughter are both expecting girls and are both due on February 2, 2010. We have taken to calling them the "Two Twos", so when I saw Mo's "Two Tu-tus" image I knew I had to make a little gift for Janet to celebrate our upcoming blessings.

Janet's daughter has a beautiful dark complexion and very dark daughter is very fair, so I played up the contrast. An added treat is that Janet's favorite color is, you guessed it...PURPLE!

Have a terrific Friday, phew another week bites the dust!

It's all about the details:
Card stock: Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper: Crate Paper

Stamps: Mo's Digital Pencil Too

Ink: None
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Button, Prima Flower, Dimensionals, Best Occasions Rhinestone Accents, Picture Frame, Stickles
Tools: Janome Sewing Machine, Copic Markers
