Cafe a la Friendship

Hi Everyone! I'm back with another card!! YAY!!! Ooh it felt good to get creative again!
Guess I got inspired by all the fabulous Blog Hops lately. Did you all see the amazing creations on the JustRite Blog Hop? And of course there was the Gina K release, and Unity hops and SO many more!

Not to mention just all the beautiful Blogs that I keep coming across in Blog Land.

SO.... while I'm feeling well, I'm getting creative! Making hay (or in this case cards!) while the sun shines!!

Which brings me to my card... I made this one for Gina K's Stamp TV Sketch Challenge - STVSCVD04 by Vicki (vdutchr).

The image is Cafe a la Friends (which also happens to be the sentiment on the inside of the card!), from the Unity Store Kit for February - Life is Fabulous. I just got this image the other day and it's SO cute!
The background is Divine Swirls CB Embossed, and the pattern paper is from Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry collection.
I even tried a new technique! I used iridescent chalk (Thanks Tamijo!!!) to create some shading with the Nestie still over the image. I was really please with the gently result.
The tiny bit of colouring is with Prismacolour Pencils blended with baby oil, and the gorgeous satiny ribbon was from a WRAK.
I finished it off with 3 little pearls from Basic Grey's Opaline collection (kind of a soft gold).

Thanks for looking, and hope you liked it!
