A Special Friend

Wow what a day it has been today. Charlie has been so ill bless him. He has had a horrible sickness bug and has really not been himself. At the time of writing this he is laying asleep next to me. I have'nt really had much time to be creative today but after sitting with Charlie all day I got a tiny bit of time to make a card and here is what I came up with. Sorry if the picture is not very good but it's the best I could do in the light I have. If it's really bad I will change it tomorrow.

I have used a precious moments image and coloured it with promarkers. I used the blender pen to give a softer look. I have gone for the Deep Purple, Bright Green and Cream colour theme from Colour Create. The papers were from a pack I got years ago while on holiday in Canada. The craft stores over there are fab. I have distressed them by tearing the edges. The purple card is also from my stash and I have embossed it using an embossing folder. I have embellieshed using gems, Pearls, Buttons, Lace, String and flowers all from my stash. The little sentiment was from a pack I have had for ages and the metal buttons have a distressed look ( Well they look like they have been well used but I think its just a distressed effect.)

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
