Simple Wishes Friends

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE. For my color combo I used Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Pretty in Gray Shadows and for some zinge I used Tuesday's ARTFUL INKABLES CHALLENGE 04 - Sparkle see my stickles on the flower centers and the gem in the butterflies?. I also had to do another of Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Foil Embossing. Just love that technique. Well there is absolutely NO coloring on this and that is rare for me. Since discovering Copics especially.LOL. Anyway this darling flower set just released at midnight from TREEHOUSE STAMPS along with 3 other darling fall/halloween sets. I made this especially for a darling friend and really hope she likes it. You can never have too many friends and at times I feel as though I have none and wonder if everyone feels that way from time to time so I am sending this just to remind her that I will always be a friend. I stamped the 2 sizes of flowers with pretty in pink then the matching centers with sage shadow on the base then stamped off for the 1 inch squared panels 3a & b. On the 1 inch panels I then stamped the sentiment in sage shadow and popped them up. Panel 2 is my foil embossed Cuttlebug dots folder with ribbon tied around it. I punched the Martha Stewart butterflies, glued together then added 1 gem in the center and popped them up. So how did I do?
