Best Friend Hugs

Since starting my blog I think this has to be my favourite card so far, I'm really pleased with the result.

I am entering this card into the following two challenges:

Clean & Simple Sketch
Week 103 Theme - Friends
So here it is
 a closer view...

When I saw that the latest Less is More theme was 'Friends' I knew exactly which stamp I wanted to use, its called 'Best Friends' by Wild Rose Studio.  Its such a fun and girlie stamp, I love it!  I stamped the image and coloured with ProMarkers and although still a novice I really enjoyed colouring this one.  I chose the patterned paper I wanted to use before I started colouring the image.  I still only have a few ProMarkers in my collection but managed to match it up ok.  The design paper I used is from a paper pad by First Edition Paper and has glossy, glittered accents.  I took the following photo using the flash to try to pick up on the glitter.
I die cut the image and popped it up on 3D foam and then finished off the card with some peach grosgrain ribbon, an extra large brad with a rub-on sentiment and an adhesive pearl.
Woohoo, actually really chuffed :)
