Fur-Ever Friends Clean and Simple Friendship Card

When I saw this image entitled "Fur-Ever Friends" from DigiBox  designs, I fell in love with it.  The animals are just so adorable and the sentiment was just purrr-fect for a friendship card.

I left the card pretty simply by just using a white A2 base card and adding mats of yellow and green.  I colored the image using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Prismacolor colored pencils.  I raised the colored image off the card using a piece of craft foam and attached the cute yellow flower brads in each corner.  Except for the coloring, this card came together rather quickly.  Here is a closeup of the colored portion of the card:

I plan on using this again with a different sentiment and will post that one as soon as I create it.
