Crafty Secrets Girlfriends Challenge

This week our design team was given a challenge by our wonderful and extremely talented team leader, Vicki Chrisman. Our challenge was to make a project/card using images from the "Girlfriends" Images & Journal Notes. What a fun challenge!! Here is the card that I made using the Crafty Secrets "Girlfriends" Images & Journal Notes.I love this image with just a hint of color. I thought it would go perfectly with the flower basket lady from the Crafty Secrets NEW Glamour Girls stamp set. On the image of the ladies I slightly distressed the edges and inked them with Ranger Distress Ink, Frayed Burlap. Then I added just a tiny bit of diamond stickles on the flowers. For the flower basket lady I stamped the image on Cryogen White CS using Ranger Adirondack Pitch Black Ink and then colored the image with Copic markers. I stamped the image twice, colored and cut out the bow and layered on top of the first image. The background paper is from the Crafty Secrets Classic Paper Pad. I used Ranger Distress Ink, Milled Lavender on the edges and stamped a couple of flourished corner elements in two of the corners and then I lightly went around the design on the paper with waterfall stickles. To finish the card I stamped the sentiment and added some floral stickers from the Heartwarming Vintage Sticker, Best Wishes sticker sheet, added some blue ribbon and purple brads.
