We're in this together!

Well I have a fun card to share with you today. I saw this sketch from CPS, so that was my starting point. I have been thinking about the Verve encourging challenge and also the JUGS paper piercing challenge. After thinking about all of those for a few days, here is what I came up with.
The card
Isn't that fun? I really liked being able to switch up the clothes for each woman. It really does fit the idea I was going for. I reallly like the idea of women helping each other and I am always amazed at how different we can be and yet how supportive and loving we can be. I paper pierced the gal on the left and the gal on the right was colored with copics. Add a little stiching and there you go.
It's a good life!
