A Day in the Life by InStyle Stamps

Today is the InStyle Stamps Color Challenge and it is a serene and fun color challenge just look at the possibilities.

I was truly trying not to use color as the inspiration photo from Decor8 has some very plain lines and little splashes of color, but I just got carried away with my markers. What can I say? I like to color and these Day in the Life images from InStyle Stamps are pretty amazing.

So my card is two adorable friends that are shopping and chatting, you know just like friends should do when they shop, and then I believe as with all of us we have the moment when we realize what a good caring friend we have. I have quite a few of those and they often come to my mind.
Okay here's my card.
