Friends Forever

I was asked to make a card by hubs so that "the boys" can give a card to their favourite barmaid when she leaves to go onto other pastimes. The brief was "pink, glitzy, girly and have a horse on it" I hope I covered it with this card. Hubs likes it so that's ok.
I used the image "Friends Forever" from Delicious Doodles. I used my pencils and babyoil to colour.
I used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday to put all the elements together to make the card
.All the mats are of pale green glitter card. The panel behind the image is cream card embossed after applying tattered rose DI to the embossing folder. Some pink, satin edged, organza ribbon overlaid with pink/green grossgrain under both these panels.
Some pink pearl swirls with added tiny gems across the top.
The charm contains a "good luck" flower cut from shrink plastic, the chain attached with a pearl brad.

Across the bottom - flowers. From Duck Pond Crafts as was the little horse charm. These were white before a light dusting of pale pink promarker. Again attached with some pearl brads. Just a dash of stickles because I was asked for glitzy

Wow, that's two girly cards on the trot.

My regular followers will wonder where the Croms they know has gone. Normal service will be resumed soon; but coming out of that comfort zone can be a good thing to help strengthen those weaknesses.

I will be entering this card into the challenge over at
Sketch Saturday - Their Sketch
