You're the Best - Angie girl

Hi, finally got to get back in my room and create 
something.
This card I created using Unity Stamps and following the sketch

Here is the sketch, a rather simple one this week.


I changed up the center a bit to use an oval instead of 
a square.
I have a BFF that is great and always there for me even if it
is just to get together and have a couple glasses of wine and chat.
So I wanted to make a card to send her to tell her how special she is to me.

I stamped the Unity Angie Girl stamp from the "Today I am Happy" set on kraft cardstock.  I colored her using my Polychromo pencils.  The color I
like the best on kraft is red but I wanted to give the purple a try.
This would also be a great image to paper piece her hat and shirt.
I cut an oval frame using a Gina Marie die out of purple paper
that has a sling chevron pattern to it.
The background is a piece of paper from a Watercolor stack from Michaels.
I embossed the background paper but then ran it through again after I embossed it but not inside the folder but underneath it.  This flattens the pattern a bit to
make it have a softer look to it.  The "you're the best" is also a Unity stamp from the Butterflies & Sunbeams set.

Thanks for taking the time to spot by and take a peek at my blog.
