How can you pick a Favorite? Really!!!!! Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge

You know it is the truth!!! The Challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge this week is to use your favorite Mo's Digital Pencil image and add a sentiment.  Elaine has really chosen some awesome challenges hasn't she.  Here is my all time favorite image, Late, using one of my favorite styles, Vintage, kinda!!!:

For someone who seldom uses a digital image more than one time I think I have used Late at least 5 or 6 and I love coloring him every single time I do.  I wanted to make him especially handsome for this special challenge so decided to give him a more vintage staging. 
The block was masked with a Tim Holtz mask and sponged with distress ink and layered with doilies and strands of pearls, roses and lace.  I added a key and lock along with a beautiful gold toned ribbon tied in the double loop, I have to keep doing it so I don't forget how, right!!!  I used replica typewriter keys to spell out my Late sentiment which is what my card was as most of my Birthday cards usually are.  I have the best of intentions but I almost always have them made on time just don't get them mailed...yeah I know...

I can't wait to stop by the rest of the DT blogs to see what their favorite images are, wonder if they will be old or new, how do you really choose because every new one is a new favorite...you know I am right!!!  Be sure to grab your favorite image, add a sentiment and play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.

Stunning! I can't narrow my favorites down o less than, oh, say 20---or maybe it's closer to 50! Got to LOVE Mo. She started me on this crazy digi journey. Hate o think about all the $$$ I've spent---and it's all her fault! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
