Thank You For being A Friend

Got the tunes cranked up and I'm here, read to tell you about our new challenge at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges! Why do I have my tunes cranked up, you ask? Well, because this fortnight, our challenge is a Song Inspiration challenge! Whoo Hoo! How fun it that?! I bet you;re already starting to think about your favorite songs and what kind of crafting project it inspires, aren't you?! Hopefully you are, because we'd love for you to create something and play along with us. Remember, you have two weeks to play along for your chance to be one of our DT favorites or even a winner of a fabulous prize from one of these generous sponsors:

Now, on to the details of my card. "Thank You For Being A Friend" is the song that inspired my card. I made this for an amazing friend, who needs some cheering up right now.  I hope she's surprised when she gets this card and some goodies in the mail! Anyway, I went with one of my favorite color combos - Black, White and Pink. My card layout uses the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. All papers are from my stash. I've used a fun mix of papers: Chevron, Polka Dots, Stars and Stripes. I've used the image, Little Monster, by Wonderstrange, hand colored with Promarkers.  I've used pink gemstones and black pearls, to embellish. I added extra sparkle by using a piece of pink glittered ribbon across the center. The image and hearts were mounted with foam tape, for added dimension.This would also make a great card for kids!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
