Good morning it's time for a new challenge at Stampin for the Weekend. The theme this time is Friendship.
Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Saturated Canary. The team have been lucky enough to receive some gorgeous image's to play with. For my card I chose Tammy Pie.

I cut my card base from Kraft card and then followed a sketch from the Deconstructed sketch. The papers are My Minds Eye Lost and found from the pink and blue collections. Tammy Pie has been coloured using Copics and then cut out using a Spellbinders nesties (I think they are called distressed edges). The sentiment was printed from my computer.
