Little Best Friends!!

My 2nd post as Guest Designer for the Digi Bells DT Blog~~~~Enjoy!!!!
I just have to share this story~~when I was creating this card I was taken back about 20 years ago, when our youngest was 3.  I was a SAHM and babysat for 4 very nice families.  One of the families had 3 kids just like us--all about the same ages :0)  There youngest little girl and ours were Best Buds!!  They did everything together.  They loved to watch "The Little Mermaid" over and over and over again.  They did know it by heart :D  Well they would plan to wear there little mermaid t-shirts on the same day Every week and I do mean EVERY week~~Alissa's was pink and Danielle's was purple~~anddddd when they would do something they were always side by side and hand in hand just like this EB image!!!   Oh how I wish I had a pic to show you how CUTE they were!!!
Sooooo when I was coloring this image I went back in time and thought where have the years gone cuz they are now 22 and 23.  Now on with my creation...................
Found in EB Designs Digi Collection
Colored with Copics.  Added diamond glaze to girlies waistbands and pails and then sprinkled alittle FS sand on the pails for fun :D  
Lots and lots of butterflies!!  Bottom and sides were fancied with Large MS punches.
Sentiments were made by myself and punched with SU word window punch--matted with SU cs and finished with a rhinestone and stickles.
I was truly inspired to try this card by the Uber talented Jacqui of "Cat Whiskers"
