Your My Best Friend

Good Morning Everyone, 

So sorry I have not blogged since Sunday, this week has been mental at home and work and time has ran away with me. Luckily it is Friday today which means a bit of shopping and scrap booking. 

The card I have today is a card I made for my mums birthday back in January, the card was for my brother to give to her. 

I used a 8x8 card blank and matted and layered it with card stock I inked in brown and yellow paper. 

The image is from Lili of the Valley and it walked perfectly for my mum as she loves dogs and cats, and when I seen the image, the song by Queen keeps popping into my head "Your my best friend" and all I can do is sing it to myself. Even now while typing this I am singing it to myself.

I used my promarkers and graph' it markers to colour the image in, I used chalk to do the sky and part of the grass. 

I added white liquid pearls around the image to give it some texture to the card, I used a nestabilitie corner die, and inked it with yellow and brown, I inked the brown through the die and the yellow over the die cut when I released it. 

To finish the card, I added card candi, ribbon, and yellow glitter glue to the center of the flowers on the backing paper. 

The challenges that I am entering this into are:
