July 2013 Spectrum Noir Challenge "Friendship"

Hello there! This card is for the July 2013 Spectrum Noir Challenge calling for a "friendship" theme. You can find the details for this challenge here:

 This originally wood-mounted rubber stamp came from my sister years ago and so sorry, has no company name with it. 
 I colored these two girlies with Spectrum Noir and layered them on scalloped circles cut with my Cricut "Elegant Edges" cartridge. The papers are from Recollections, except the background party- streamer paper which was from a Disney scrapbook pack. 

The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs "Sentiments Collection 2" and you can find it here: Our Daily Bread Designs

Colors for the "apple overalls" little girl:
Hair- GB2, TN2, TN5
Skin- FS3, FS8
Overalls- CR3, PP5, PP6, CR6 (apple)  
Blouse & Cuffs- HB2, HB1, LV2 PL2 (gloves)

Colors for the "heart overalls" little girl:
Hair- BGR2, BGR4, BGR5
Skin- FS1, FS6
Overalls- HB2, HB1, LV2, 
Blouse & Cuffs- CR3, PP5, PP6, CR6 (heart), LV1 (glove)

Shoes for both- IG2, IG6

I distressed the edges with Color Box "Pink" ink, used a Fiskars "Lace" paper punch for the corners (you can find it here: Fiskars Lace Punch), and several ribbons. The white mesh "net" ribbon and the "crochet trim" ribbon are from May Arts.  I also added a little satin ribbon (Offray) for the bow. 

And last, I added a little Viva Pearl Pen in "Ice White" around the circle and in the corners.  This card is going to be packed up tightly for Operation Write Home and I do not want those little pearl pen dots to be sticking to anything, so I will be dusting them with a tiny bit of baby powder to remove any tackiness. 

Thank you for stopping by!
