Friends Forever

This is my second post tonight!  This card uses some My Minds Eye Madison Avenue and the dark one is from a pad I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  The image is from Saturated Canary.  They have a challeng going on to use dots.  The newsprint paper works for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge.  The sentiment is an older stamp which works for Simon Says Stamp Challenge. I also stamped the doily with a script stamp.

I tried my hand at some fancy stitching, but it came out crooked as did many other elements on this card:( I guess I didn't get my V8;)
I used WOC flowers and stamens and the darker flowers are Prima. I thought the dark ones needed something, so I added some glitter glue to the edges. I did my first double bow. I did it twice because the first time I tried using distress inks for a grey and pink two-tone. It didn't turn out.
I colored up my girl as a practice since she was new, but decided to use her. That is why the purse is a random red.
My son says she needs a background and that is something I definitely need to work on.

The card has a Saturated Canary image, so I think I can't go too wrong!?!
