"Sweet Friend" Bake Shoppe


I recently came across a new blog: Denami Designs. They are having a sketch challenge this week, and this is my entry. I struggled with the colors of the card. First, I only used black, white, and hot pink. It needed something more, so I added the yellow cupcake wrappers. It STILL needed a little "oomph", so I changed the button (I had added a yellow button when I added the yellow wrappers) and added some aqua photo corners that I cut from cardstock. My original image and mat were rounded at the top, and it reminded me of a window, so I added the awning and turned my card into a bakery. I was so happy with the results!
