For a Friend

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. It's a long weekend here in the States and so the kids and I are enjoying the day together. Back to business as usual tomorrow though.

I wanted to make a special card for a special friend today so I took out some new papers and some of my Whimsy Stamps and got to work. Last week an amazing package of papers arrived at my door from my wonderful friend Crystal! Thank you SO much sweetie, I love them all!

This image is Valerie's Gift illustrated by Crissy Armstrong. I've colored her with Copics to match these beautiful BG Hopscotch papers. I then used some flowers, a lacy doily, and sticky pearls to embellish the card. The sentiment is from Friendship Tickets also available at Whimsy and I cut it with the Ticket Die.

This card fits at the challenges:
Corrosive Challenges - Lace and Pearls
Creative Cowgirls - Turquoise and or Brown
I Did It Creations - Brr I'm turning blue
Let's Ink It Up - NO DIGI and Anything Goes
Scrappy Frogs - use a Sentiment
2 Sisters - flowers
BasicGrey - BG ITEM and dots & spots
Copic Creations - anything new plus Copics
Craft Your Days Away - anything goes

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you have a great rest of your Monday!
