Just for me...

I've been so involved in my design teams that it's been a while since I've done a card "just for me"... Well, when I saw this adorable Saturated Canary image I had to have it.  I just love the style of her images and this one brought to me a feeling of connection to my bestee.  No matter how far apart, there's always a connection - and the sweet sound of her voice brings home that feeling of having a confidant.  Torrey - I love you!
The image is colored with my Copics... I had to keep it big because of all of the little details I didn't want to miss.  I used some papers from a Recollections pack that all got hand stitched.  I added some ribbon, lace, colored pearls and a Prima flower and leaves. 

So this one is for Torrey - my bestee and my confidant - the one I can share all my secrets with (like I have any of those...)  I can't wait until you're here next month!

I will be entering this in these challenges:

Milk Coffee - Anything goes

Simon Says - Bingo - flowers/lace/ribbon
My Mums Craft Shop - Digital
Crafts & Me - Spring colors
