This card was made for my overseas friend, whom I miss so much. She is one of my best friends in the whole world!!! I haven't seen her in the past 5 years but we do skype from time to time when time permits. Hopefully, one day I can go back or vice-versa and we can meet again for real! In honour of our great friendship, this is for you my dear.

I embossed the beige cardstock and matted it over a brown one. I added some self-adhesived diamond for some bling. The image was colored with copics and prismacolored pencils. Some red stickles was added to the dress and bonets. I have used my paper piercer for around the card, used my black pen to give some accent to the border and on the patterned paper. I have also added some butterfly by punching with the Maped butterfly punch (something that I don't use very very often) and added some antennas onto them. The sentiment is from the October Afternoon stamp set.

All That Scraps and Marianne's Design Divas are having a DT call and so, let's cross my fingers. I have never been on a DT team before. I am still learning the odds and ends of cardmaking though and each time, there is something new to learn. It never ends :-)

Here is a close up of the image with the embossed background and bling.
