For a friend

Good morning! Fab 'n' Funky Challenges are back today after our summer break. This week's challenge is hosted by our very and talented Susan and she's picked a lovely theme for you...'for a friend'. We're sponsored  this time by the fabulous Crafts and Me .
To make my card I coloured the beautiful Genevieve image with my copics then placed her in the die cut and embossed frame (it's brown, not black as it looks in the photo!), cutting around part of her hair to spill over the frame. The papers are Authentique, I love these beautiful blue and brown shades together. I added some die cut flowers, a scrap of lace and a stamped sentiment.
Hope to see you playing along at Fab N Funky this week, it's such a great theme, it's always lovely to make something for a friend!
Thanks for visiting, have a wonderful day!

  8. Wow, Chris, what beautiful colours in your card! The designer paper makes a wonderful background for your gorgeous young lady. She is perfectly coloured and seems ready to say something. What a clever idea to have her continue right out of the die-frame, too. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
