Friendship time over at Besties International

Today being the 1st September means it is time for a new challenge over at Bestieschallenge.blogspot. as always we are a Anything Goes Challenge but we also have a theme running to which this month long is one of Friendship.
For my card i have used the image Carley & Gill  (it reminds me of myself and my own Bestie). I picked up a pack of these odd shaped cards at a show years ago and decided today was the day to use one!

I covered the card base in this marbled type paper i picked up in the store and then added flourishes and corners in a similar cardstock to the colour of Gills pants.
I coloured the image in using my promarker pens along with some new "skin tones" pens by Spectrum Noir.

This next photo shows a little better the side on view and its opening.
I added lots of ditsy flowers picking up the colours I used in the colouring. The sentiment is by Verve Stamps but this one is now not available on its own but happy to say you can get a similar one within a New Release Set out just last week Bloom Bright .

Now its your turn to show us your friendly cards and don't forget there are prizes to be won when you join in.



  1. Very pretty! Love the fun card shape!

  2. oh i love that funky shape of card and you've used the three panels so perfectly! i love that you've echoed the colors and flowers on the "wings" really beautifully and yet the central image is very much the star of the show!!!
