Friends Forever

Here's a card made with a sweet little image from Lili of the Valley, coloured with Promarkers. I embossed a background piece with a cuttlebug frame. The rosette is a 1/2" strip of accordian pleated paper and the sentiment is by Craftwork Cards

I added a bit of bling to the flowers. I coloured the image on the plane, and forgot to make a note of the Promarker colours used, sorry.

My sister and I (oh, that makes me sound like the queen!) are off to St Augustine for a couple of days, possibly heading up to Savannah as well. I have to do the driving, and she is even worse than me at map reading, if such a thing is possible, so expect a tale or two later in the week.

St. Augustine is practically my neck of the woods. Too bad i have to work this week or I could have met up with you for coffee (or happy hour!)

Thanks for sharing the link, but unfortunately it seems to be down... Does anybody have a mirror or another source? Please answer to my post if you do!

I would appreciate if a staff member here at www.going-buggy.blogspot.com could post it.

Thanks,
James

I just love your coloring so much. I've been attempting it with my new Pormarkers but my little girls don't turn out like yours. I like the rosette and the embossing folder. What is the name of the folder? I don't see it at my Michaels.
Hugs,
Mary Ann

A gorgeous card, En. I love LOTV and it looks great with that cuttlebugged frame.
