FOREVER FRIENDS 1st PROJECT

Hello Faithful Followers,

Where here we are with my 1st project for the Forever Friends MONTHLY Challenge - Card For A Girl. I decided to go with an idea for an older girl, and seeing as most girlies love shopping, I used a FF image of shopping teddies.

OUTSIDE:
The front of this card has a FF bear,  with added flowers and ribbon elements from Daisy Doodles.
INSIDE:
This is a 3 piece 'trinitage' card on plain white cardstock as a base.  I used a backing paper which I put into my graphics package and faded it right down as I didn't want it too bright. It was a free download called Patchwork Flower, but I can't for the life of me remember where it was from - sorry !!.
My first part of the 'trinitage' background is called 'Shower Tree' which is from Digi Doodles. This is a lovely image to work with and I coloured it in my graphics programme. I made a full size tree and then shrunk the image to make like a bushy shrub as I wanted it to cover further over.
The next layer is from our sponsor -  Michelle's Scrapbooking + More and it's a delightful little bridge over a river. I printed it onto card and then coloured it with  Marvy Brush Markers used as watercolours.
I put my FF bears on the front layer and decoupaged their shopping bags. I added little ribbon roses + leaves on their heads to make them more 'girlie'. I got these from Taiwan a while back.
I added a sentiment I made in my graphics programme and a silk flower from my stash.
The whole card actually folds down flat to go inside the envelope.
Gosh ! - I've got a lot of peeps in this one. I do hope I've linked them all properly. :-)
I hope you like it and big THANKS to the Girls for picking me for the Design Team. Hugs xxxxoooxxxx
