Today's card is a commission that I finished recently for the granddaughter of a friend at work.

It was her birthday on the 17th so I know that I'm safe to post it now.

The image is called Patience and it's available as a digi from Mo's Digital Pencil.

My friend chose it as the image for the card as soon as she saw it because it reminded her so much of her granddaughter and the way she 'loves' their cat, Jack, lol.

The image was coloured with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I love using both now but still want to find the time to try colouring with Distress Inks, but time to play seems to be elusive!!

The backing paper is from the Papermania "Back to Basics" pack.  It's matted onto an acid green/yellow self adhesive paper from Kanban

I used a Martha Stewart punch ' French Scroll'  across the card and added some "Paper Whispers" from Mrs. Grossmans.

I prepared the buttons by 'sewing' them with white thread and stuck them down using Pinflair.

I made the matching keyring by super-sizing the digi onto shrink plastic and coloured it again and attached it to a mobile charm finding.

The sentiment is from Labels, Tags and Banners.

The design was repeated on the inside but rotated to create some added interest.

Here's a close up of the keyring.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
