Besties Challenge 8

I had NOTHING to do with forcing my girlfriend  Adrienne, (who's cards I've showcased before) into making this!! I gently challenged her to at least get out of her comfort zone of funky, contemporary style card making and give one of these gorgeous Besties digi's a try. She did and just look at how awesome she did on this gate fold design with a band!!!!! She used my pro Markers to color her in.
The colors to enhance "Lolita" are hunter green, rusts, white and orange. The metallic card stock did not photograph so great so hope you can appreciate how gorgeous it looks in person.  The flower was from K & Company  and the punch was Martha Stewarts. The ONLY part I made her do was to add lace so I could enter this in her first challenge with the "Besties Cahllenge Blog".

Leave her some LOVE and I'll pass it on ! By the way, she still is refusing to have a blog!
