Friends Forever?

Hi All,

I made this card using the adorable Charlotte stamp from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. For some reason, I am really drawn to these ladies!

Once again, my colours were inspired by my DSP - Rockabilly. I am loving that pack lately, and I wish I had purchased an extra pack before it retired.

The card base is Whisper White, with a layer of Ridinghood Red, and a layer of DSP (the black one with the glossy cherries is so delicious).

The next layer is a piece of DSP layered with a piece of Kiwi Kiss CS, and they were cut from SU's Top Note die and my Big Shot. There was a piece of Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon tied around at this point.

The main image panel was Neeah Solar White CS, cut out with Label Nestabilities, and that was layered onto a piece of Ridinghood Red CS. I found online somewhere how to make a thinner border for the Label Nesties (like the red one here), but I don't remember where. So, I will make a tutorial for it, and maybe someone can tell me who posted it originally, so I can give credit.

So, I stamped Charlotte in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured her with Copic markers. I sponged a bit of Kiwi Kiss ink around her as well, for some extra interest. I also added some Crystal Effects to the dolls' eyes to make them pop.
I added some black brads to the outside of the 2 die-cut layers as well. The sentiment is a Rub-On from SU's Chit Chat pack. I thought it was fitting, because it looks like Charlotte is not letting those dolls go for anything!
Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
