The Dueling Darlings: "Friends are the family we choose for ourselves!"

It's August and I'm a little late for the duel on the 15th.  We are a group of card making friends who once a month create cards from a kit supplied by a member of one of our two teams, the Divas (my team) and the Dazzlers.  This month our team leaders are Carol for the Divas and Melina for the Dazzlers.  They chose the theme "friends are the family we choose fro ourselves" in keeping with the Dueling Darlings celebrating our anniversary.  Carol sent us a delightful kit full of delicious designer papers, embellishments and the most delightful images celebrating friendship.  I was late putting my hands on this wonderful kit due to the traveling my hubby and I have been doing this summer so today I finally was able to create this card:

 I just love this cute image and from Art Impressions, the girlfriend series "laughing"and the sentiment is also from Art Impressions.  The image was colored with Copic Markers.  The card base is Stampin' Up, Elegant Eggplant and the yellow-green background paper was embossed with embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts, "Celebrate".

On the inside of the card I added another sentiment included in the kit.  This one is from Clear Stamps.
