Aud Sentiments Challenge - 23 May 2013 - Use the word "friend" on your card/project

It's the start of another challenge at the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog.  This fortnight the challenge is to "use the word "friend" on your card/creation".
This fortnight we are being sponsored by StampArt Design by Kathryne.
For both of my cards that I am showing I have used the StampArt Design image called "Gracie".  She's a beauty isn't she??  For my first card I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen.
The backing paper I have used is from the Bearly Mine Designs set called "Floral Surprise".  It's quite a loud backing papers but I really like it and have toned it with plain card stock matting and layering.  The sentiment is also from StampArt Design and comes as a bonus if you buy the image called "Little Bear Watering Can Friend".  The card has been finished off with some lace and paper roses.
It's amazing how the same image can look so different.  Again I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers.
The backing paper I have used this time is Bearly Mine Designs Floral Surprise.  I have finished this card off with some washi tape which I have pleated, sentiment again from StampArt Design, feather and some flowers made with some scraps of Tim Holtz paper which I have die-cut/scrunched/inked and held together with brads.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:
