My Lovely Friends

Sweet Friend

Hello everyone how are we all? 
Well I've actually made a card purposely for 2 challenges & I've used a new stamp.
I've followed a fabby sketch that my lovely DT friend Becky did, its soooooooo easy. Its not very often I do sketches as I cant be bothered take my laptop out to my craft room & I forget to draw them. Well this one I actually remembered, so didnt need my lappy.........its really that easy.
So here is my card............
I've used one of the uber cute Candibean stamps, I really enjoyed colouring this one & I cant wait til I colour the others I got. 
The card shape I made with a Go-Kreate die.

All the flowers are WOC from LLC & I added white gesso as well. The butterfly is from Etsy.

I have added gorgeous lace from LLC, I also added 'Organza Pearl Rose Trim' above the image.

This Candibean stamp is called 'Friends Together' & I coloured it with Copics, colours used are listed below............

E11, E21, E00, E000, R32, R20 - Skin on both girls
E49, E47, E44, E43, E40 - Hair (standing girl) E59, E55, E53, E51, E50 - Hair (sitting girl)
V95, V93, V91, V000 - Dress & Hair Bobble (Standing girl)
C3, C1, C00 - Socks & Bands on Dress - C5, C3, C1 - Shoes (standing girl)
C3, C1, C00 - Cardigan & Shoes (sitting girl)
RV93, RV91, RV10 - Dress, Tights & Hair Bow (sitting girl)
W3, W1, W00 - Ground
I also added a bit of shabby white fran-tage.

Dies used are Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Swirl & Leaf'. The uber gorgeous papers are both Maja Design Sofiero  'Magnificent Flower Street' & 'Exuberance of Flowers in Bloom' & they were inked with Pumice Stone, lightly distressed with my Tim Holtz tool & machine stitched as always.
I made 2 bows with my seam binding which I distressed & added a 'Shabby Bark Heart' to them. The sentiments are Little Darlings 'Tag Alongs' which were also inked around the edge with pumice stone.

Well thats it from me we are off to PC World & Maplins today to get hubster a new wireless mouse, may just pop into Dunelm...........nudge nudge wink wink, well I need new bedding for Natalie ;0)

Take care lovelies & enjoy the rest of your weekend.
