Pink Black-Eyed Susans

Here's this week's Freshly Made Sketch #71...

and here's my card. It's also for the MFP Speedy Fox Challenge #144 to "doodle a frame around it." I used a flower image from the MFP black-eyed susan for encouragement set for my card, coloring it pink! (gasp!) I know they're yellow flowers, but I made mine pink just for fun. The tag was embossed with a Sizzix ef, and I added 3 different ribbons along with some Lawn Fawn twine. The sentiment was computer generated and hand-cut, and I added black stickles to the flower center. Lastly, I adhered some black rhinestones to the corners and doodled around the card base with a fine black marker.

This is my 2nd and last post for today, so thanks for hanging out with me today, and I hope you all have a fabulous Friday!

I think it looks gorgeous as a pink flower. It reminds me of pink coneflowers, which are quite common here in the summers in Minnesota.
