Eskimo Kisses

Hi ! Its me again! :-)
Today's card is pretty self explanitory. A "Thank You for being my friend" card.
I thought this image by Mo's Digital pencil worked perfectly.When I was little my mum and I used to give eachother eskimo kisses. (never being fond of wet kisses, myself). We still do actually.
Can everyone say Awwwwww.....

My recipe:
Papers: DCWV and assorted from stash
Sentiment: my own
Colors: Prismacolors
Gems: Recollection
Ribbon: Offray

And a close up of the image:
You can see how I added a bit of light blue to break up the blacknes of the child's hair. I think it gives it a bit of dimention.

lots of chunky layers.....

I'd like to take part in the following challenges:
 Mo's DP2: Bling
Sentimental Sunday: Sentiment and dimentional
Raise the Bar: Cooler weather

Thanks for all your sweet comments , they really make my day. :-)

I a d o r e your colouring. Could you tell me one thing: Are those layers { } nestabilities? How come the sizes are so near to each others? :o Labels 7 (hooray, I got it FINALLY) are far away from each others. Prolly the problem is here, I don't know how.

:D Oh, it is wonderful to have you back. <3

Hi Sweetie:
I haven't heard from you in a while so I figured that I would pop in and see what you were up too. My goodness you never stop do you. Your card here is gorgeous. I so love how you colored these two cutie. I am going to say that I think that your technique is even better than before and I will boldly say that your colouring is Master to none. Wow is the only word that comes to mind. When I grow up I want to colour like you! Lol! I do miss you and think of you often. Just loads of stuff going on and trying to find some level of normalacy if that is really possible. Just know that I haven't forgotten you, and still love you my sweet friend. Hugs.

Once again your skill of creating a PERFECT and such defined layout is amazing. Your cards are never out of balance, all the elements click together in total harmony. A beautiful mind you have, my friend!
