Childhood Friends/Friday Sketchers

I had so much fun making this card! Sally-Ann over at Grab-A-Doodle-Do has some seriously cute digi downloads!!! I had the Lilly set already, but I thought she needed a friend. So, I went back over to see what else I could get my hands on and I found Alfie.
I cut out Lilly and pasted her right along side her friend Alfie and his dog. To color them, I used my Copic markers (see picture for specific colors). Check out his "rustic/washed-out" jeans. I got that look by using the blue with the skin color and lots of blender...it was kinda an accident. *smile* Also, Alfie's shirt was plain, so I added the "jersey" look.
To add a little pizzaz to my flowers, I embossed them with my Swiss Dots folder. It may be hard to see in the picture. The swirls underneath the flowers are made with the Sizzix die. The cute brad and little brads are from Spare Parts. Also, did some machine stitching.
This card was also made following the sketch from Friday Sketchers.
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
