Fabulous Friend

I made a card yesterday for the Sugar Bowl challenge following this week's great sketch by Marlene and using a stamp I won in an earlier challenge. It is called Fragile Beauty and this is the first time I have inked it up. It was coloured with Promarkers and the die cut oval was coloured with distress ink and spritzed with a little water to give a dappled effect. The pretty backing papers are from First Edition,  I distressed the edges and also doodled round them before mounting them on pink cardstock which I also distressed round the edges. The butterfly and sentiment are both from Stampin Up and the flowers from Wild Orchid.
