Mother's Day or Special Female Birthday at Lexi's Creations

Hi Susan here...

Today we start a new challenge at Lexi's Creations and the challenge this time is a split one, you can choose which one you want to follow.
So here it is the theme is 'Mother's Day or Special Female Birthday', full details of the challenge are on the LC's challenge blog along with details of our sponsor and some amazing inspiration from my Design Team.

Now for my card....

For this card I wanted to make something special for a dear friend of mine. The backing papers were free off a magazine a while ago, but I really liked them and the texture of the paper, I won't use papers and embellishments that are not good quality and although these were free they were produced on good quality paper.
The pearls and the ribbon are from Arc Trading here in Manchester, it is like a wonderland for trimmings and craft items.

I have used one of my favourite digi images designed by Lexi Lee, and available from her store, Fairy Dust Crafts, she is called Molly with Lillies.
I have used chalks entirely to colour the image as this is my favourite method for colouring and shading.

This also is one of Lexi Lees Sentiments available from her store Fairy Dust Crafts, it is called Special Friend. I have used a die to cut the shape and coloured the edges with chalks, then I added stickles to the edges and a few pearls.

Thanks for looking and for all your wonderful comments
Love and hugs
