Best Friends Forever

Oh my!  Hello again!  What a weekend I have had!  3 cards in 3 days!  That is certainly a record for me.  One I'm sure won't be repeated for a while, but it's been fun  :)  Today's card is for the challenge at Tiddly Inks Challenge which is Best Friends Forever.  I decided to use the very cute new image, Wryn and Emmy.
I think they are the sweetest little things!  I used my Prismacolor pencils to color them in.  Don't they look so happy?  That's how my best friend Donna and I will look on Tuesday when we go out to dinner together.
The DP are from DCWV some from Nana's Nursery and some from Nana's Kitchen.  They match so well!  The flowers and vintage seam binding are from Wild Orchid.  The beads are all from my stash.

Here's a shot of the inside.  I took it at an angle so you could see that the pocket has depth.  I plan to put some Earl Grey tea bags in there for Donna since that is her favorite tea.  The narrow strip of floral paper you see on the "spine" is just to cover up the background paper.  I did the same thing on the outside but didn't get a shot of that (never fear, you aren't missing anything, it looks exactly like the inside).
I used a border off one of the DP to decorate this side.  I like how it looks  :)
I used the same sketch for the writing panel side.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Tiddly Inks Challenge - Best Friends Forever
