*a friend who is all ears*

This fun design was featured several weeks ago as the Card of the Week in the A Muse Newsletter. I tend to use very basic colors like black or brown for my sentiments, but this time I wanted the cursive words of the sentiment to stand out. I had already chosen a pink and green color scheme for the rest of the design, so I decided to incorporate both colors into the sentiment. I think it added a bit of visual interest, and it's always fun to try something different.

If you notice, two corners of the card are rounded. That's something else I don't do very often, but once again, it made a very simple design a bit more interesting. I also added a few details to Bunny Princess's dress and wand with a copic glitter pen. A few simple dots that took only seconds to create, add a lot of detail to the final design. Sometimes we think that it takes a lot of fancy and elaborate things to make a card a little extra special, but in reality, just a few easy extras can really make a big difference!
