Workout buddy card

Here is a card I have made using one of the digi images I recently won over at Karens Doodles Its called workout buddy, I think its really cute that Rosie is pulling Bigsby on his water skis, I've never really fancied water skiing but Bigsby and Rosie seen happy to do it.

I have followed the wonderful sketch over at Karens Doodles USA just adding a little circle sentiment in the top right hand corner to the original sketch.

The digi image has been coloured in with Promarkers. I have adding loads of texture by embossing the three pieces of card, one with swiss dots , one with D'vine swirl and the other with spots and dots Cuttlebug folders. I have then matted and layered the embossed pieces of card onto more card before sticking onto the base card.

I have added three pink buttons with cream thread running through them on the bottom right hand corner and 2 blue and cream flowers with gems in the middle and a pink larger flower with a larger gem in the middle onto the top left hand side of the card.

The sentiment has been computer generated and then cut out using my circle and scalloped circle nesties. The sentiment and image have been stuck on with 3d foam tape to raise off the card and the buttons and flowers have been stuck on with Pinflair.

I have also gone around the edge of the backing paper with a fine line silver peel off.
