Friday Freebie

Here is today's Friday Freebie from Sewn Together...Toga!
I colored Toga with my colored pencils. Then I centered Toga in my Sizzix brand Medallions medium-sized folder and embossed around him then cut it out. I used a dusty pink cats-eye chalk ink pad (it's just called pink but it's a dusty shade of pink to me) to highlight the raised design. I used the coordinating A2 Medallions folder to emboss the red card base. Then I used pink and white Prima Daisy Carzy (that's what it says on the bottom of the tube) Chloe and a gold flower sequin (don't know where I got them). I chose to use a pink ribbon that looks very similar to the ink pad I used near Toga. I used my Glossy Accents to make a raised edge around my sentiment from Jen and to adhere it over the ribbon.

I'm entering this into several challenges. First, I'm entering it into SNR's Digi Day Sweet & Sassy challenge to use Red and Pink. Also, Daring Card Makers wants to see anything that uses the January birthstone color: Garnet (my last name). Then, I used the sketch provided by Delightful Sketches to help me figure out what to do. PaperPlay wanted "Precious Metals" so I added the little gold flowers to my pink and white daisies. Cute Daisy May wants to see Flowers and Ribbons. Then No Time to Stamp and Digital Tuesday Challenge both want Valentine's Day card.

Thanks for looking at my card and remember to sign up for the Sewn Together newsletter using the link on my side bar to get the Friday Freebie images.
