A BFF Birthday card


     I have a lunch date with my bestie today to celebrate her birthday and this is the card I made for her.  Don't worry, it has a birthday sentiment on the inside..
     I've used "Belinda and Bernadette the Bench Buddies" from Stamping Bella.  I'm sure you already recognized these as Uptown Girls.  This stamp couldn't have worked out better for us.  She has straight dark hair and I have the naturally curly mess.  LOL  Don't know what I'd do without the girl.
     Here's a closer look.



Copics Used:

skin--E000, E00, E11
hair left--N5, N7, N9
clothing left--R81, R83, R85, R89, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, E71, E74, E79
hair right--E23, E25, E29, E79
clothing right--BG11, BG53, BG57, BG72, BG75, E50, E51, E53, E40, E41, E42, E43
bench--E31, E33, E35, E50
grass and flowers--YG93, YG95, YG97, Y19, YR68
butterfly--G12, BG10, V12

     Hope you're all staying safe and warm.  We're in the mid thirties here on the coast and I'm freezing my southern tush off again.  LOL
     Be blessed!

Supplies:
Paper--Crate Paper "On Trend", Kraft Outlet Brown Kraft, Copic XPress-it Blending card
Stamps--Stamping Bella "Belinda and Bernadette the Bench Buddies", sentiment from "Posh has a present"
Ink--Memento Tuxedo Black, Frayed Burlap Distress ink
Tools--MFT Fishtail Flag Stax
Miscellaneous--Inkadinkado Chalk, Recollections pearls
