Hi Susan here.....

Over at Sentimental Sundays we have another fabulous challenge beginning today and the theme is 'Celebrate Friendship'.
I love this theme, friends are so special, and the sentiment I have used on this card is one of my favourites!
For full details of the challenge and to get some fabulous inspiration from our design team take a look at the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog, and join in with us, I'm sure we all have a special friend to make a card for.

For my card I have used backing papers from my stash....all the edges have been distressed and glittered with stickles. I love using script papers, this one is a swirly mix of browns and pinks.
The ribbon and pearls are from our local market.

Well I know its another card using my 'Suzette' digi image that Christina Dee designed with Emma for me, I just can't stop using her!! I have used Promarkers to colour her and then carefully cut her out and used foam stickers to raise her from the backing papers, I have added stickles here and there on the image.

My sentiment and frame has been designed by Ann Vento and is available from Raindrop Echo Designs, I have slightly coloured the edge surround of the frame with Promarkers and then added glitter to the outter edges.

My flowers are a mix from Wild Orchid Crafts and Hobby Craft, the leaves are made using a punch.

Challenges I am entering:

Love Susan
