A Friend is Forever

I made this card for two different challenges. The first is the new Just Magnolia sketch challenge. They are a new blog and if you love Magnolia stamps, be sure to check them out. The second is the Copics Creations challenge to use jeans.

As always I stamped my images on Cryogen white with Memento Tuxedo black ink. Copics used:
Faces- E000, E00, E02, R20
Edwin Jeans - YG63, G20, Belt - E33
Shirt - B23, YR23
Hair - E97, E99
Hat - YG63, B23, YR23
Shoes and Patches - YR23, B23
Tilda Jeans - B93, Patches - YG63, R81, R85
Top and Hat - R81, R83, R85
Hair - Y23, Y19
Shoes - R83, YG63

My friend, Jenny, sent me some silk ribbon from Stamp Simply (thanks, Jenny) This ribbon is amazing, I have never been able to make a triple loop bow and not fight with it. This one turned out perfect. AND I colored the white ribbon with R83 to match my card. I am sold on this ribbon for sure. I also airbrushed the flowers to match the card.

The DP is from 3 Bugs in a Rug. Finished size is 5.75 inches square.
