Pucker up for Phindy

This card is for a very special friend of mine. I'm late for her birthday, but she knows that about me. We first met on the school bus in 1975 heading to Kindergarten. We became fast friends and have remained such for the past 36 years. Everything about her is wonderful and it's extra nice that she's a few months older than me so I can always be the 'younger' friend. LOVE YOU KIM! PS - shut your eyes if you are visiting the blog before the card arrives.

Sketch Inspiration ~ Truly Scrumptious Challenge #50

Color Inspiration

 I kept the layout and embellishments pretty simple to allow for easier mailing. I think Ms. Diva stands out on her own. The black embossed background panel adds a bit of interest without distracting from the image.
Image Detail
 I colored Piggy Diva with Copics and added Crystal Stickles for sparkle.
I love this sentiment I found for FREE at Create with TLC. If you are ever looking for some AWESOME free digis to play with, make this your first stop.
