Baby Bud Best Friend Card

Hello Lovely Crafters,

Happy Monday. I am hoping my Husband will be home from the hospital tomorrow. As some of you know, he has been going through cancer treatment. He had to be hospitalized since Friday because his electrolytes were too low. But, he is doing much better now.
I have had a few hours in the mornings to make some cards before I head out to the hospital. I used this great sketch from The Sweet Shop. I printed out a digi from Baby Buds and colored it with copics. I added some glitter to the hair and clothes. (not sure if you can see it in the photos)

The card base is made from Baja Breeze cs and the layering piece is Razzleberry from Stampin' Up. DP is all from Basic Grey. The "friend" and Polka Dot Circle stamps are from My Sentiments Exactly and the "best" stamp is from SU. I added lots of stitching and two rows of glitter glue. And of course, some velvet ribbon. Gots to have ribbon! I used a Cuttlebug folder to do the dry embossing. Here are a few detail photos.

Some challenges for Baby Bud Best Friend:
Sweet Stop Sketches: sketch plus dry embossing
BabyBud: Use a Baby Bud and Friend theme
Paper Play: Cutie Patootie
Papercraft Star: Colors-aqua, teal, rust,and magenta plus 2 0f- ribbon, stamped image, embossing, or die cut.----I used ribbon and embossing.
Basic Grey Challenges: BG paper and Dots and Spots
Craft Your Days Away: Anything Goes
Glitter Babes: Anything goes with glitter

Hope everyone is having a great day and finding time for a little card making.
