Sweet Friend

Just popping in share a card I made for a friend I have not seen to for a while. I was going to call her but decided I wanted to spend some time making a card for her.

I started making cards as my health has not been good for a while now and I needed something to keep me busy and my mind occupied. I tried making cards and found I just loved it. I don't get to see my friends and family as much as I would like because of my health so it is great that I can now make them a card to let them know that they are not far from my thoughts.

I saw the card by Laura Bassen on casestudy this week and was inspired by the hearts that look like butterflies, the colours Laura used and the white space. Almost immediately I knew what card I wanted to make. And I loved making this card-the simple CAS style, the mixture of stamping the butterflies and die cuts, the gorgeous fabric ribbon and a bit of bling!
The colour combo I saw earlier in the week on colour throwdown so it fitted perfectly for this card.
I will also enter it into the 'things with wings' challenge at do you stack up

The butterfly stamp and sentiment stamp are both from Wild Rose Studio and the ink is bamboo leaves from memento.

Enjoy your Friday night x
