'Just a note' for FF

This fortnight challenge is again....anything goes at Forever Friends!  Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are MilkCoffee and Rick St.Dennis.  I chose to use this little singer from Milk Coffee.  My daughter was born on the day Elvis died and she has always kind of been his fan.  I thought I would make her a birthday card with him but her birthday is not until August and she would see it once it posts.  lol  So, that put a whole new dilemma  for me........just what kind of card should have the king grace it!  lol  I finally settled on the kind of 'thinking of you' and used the 'Just a Note' stamp from Studio G.  I had also recently watched a video on how to make a shadow box card and wanted to give it a try.  It has about 1/4 inch recess from the top of the card front .  I did enjoy using this new technique (at least new to me).  "Elvis" is colored with copics and the silver is the Sharpee paint pen. 
The flourishes were cut with my CE and the Lovely Floral cartridge.  The little tags are from Magnolia.  I inked the edges with chestnut roan chalk.  The little charm is one I just received last week so was happy to get one used so quickly.  The flowers are from a private challenge I am in where one lady sent out flowers to participants and we have to use them all within a month of receiving.  I used 5 on this card!  Thanks Michelle for such a fun challenge!  Thanks so much for stopping by and may God be with you always.
