FRIENDS Little Girls, Butterflies and Bluebirds!!!

This cute image called "New Friends" is designed by:  Elisabeth Bell for SCACD~~ go  HERE to purchase!!
I chose the theme and sketch by JayJay from Pixie Cottage :))

So I chose to make an Easel Card~~Love this type!!
I used the darling image from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD called "New Friends".  This is my first venture with TH Crackle Paint ~Hmm will have to play with somemore~~~applied it over edges of dp on front of card and then distressed edges of cardstock with TH distressing tool:)   

 Used The Amazing and The Most Talented Becca Feeken's Right Angle Punching to fancy up my card using MS deco and butterfly corner punches~~took awhile but I like the result:))
Added HG butterfly rub-ons and Viva Decor Paper pen to butterflies and corner gems!! Outlined all dp with crystal stickles and then Spritzed front of card with Tsukineko Sparkle Shimmer Spritz--Oooo I love how it Glistens!!

I wove ribbon around the SB pendant and also through the lace. This is the first time I used my NEW bow easy and WOW it's a keeper!!!

Close Up of Darling Image
Colored with Copics~Accented with White pen; Stickles on bird's wings, shirt flowers and barrett; viva decor pen for buttons on shirt.  Image is set upon a circle nestie that was sponged as sunshine instead of clouds:))   Added paper pen gems to diamond shaped areas.  Sentiment punched with MS punch~~sponged with SU summer sun and TH broken china ink very very litely~~then finished bordering with copic #34 and stickles.

Inside of card has circle area for message which was trimmed with HG rub-ons--aren't they just the cutest:))  Layers of cardstock and DP again punched with MS border punches.  Embellished with Butterfly covered in stickles and paper pen gems and more HG rub-ons!!

Close up of inside flower~~bottom layer made with DP using Becca's Right angle punching topped with prima flowers edged with stickles and centered with (Hmm I really don't know) covered with stickles :))
