Another "Friend" card

I have really enjoyed my evenings this week since hubby is visiting his mother in California and am actually getting some craft time in. Yesterday, an old friend stopped by on her way thru Idaho from Arizona. We met for lunch and just visited for a couple hours. It was so good to see her again. It amazes me how God can bring someone into your life and even tho you do not get to see each other or do not really correspond much, the love you share as friends remains forever. I do not think her and I have even emailed each other for almost a year.....never talk on the phone.....well do not really communicate at all until we can meet up. And once we meet up, it is like we were still neighbors..... like so many years ago. I do thank the Lord for the awesome friends he has given me.

Anyway, Just thinking about friends and how much each one means to me, I made this card for a very special lady in my life. I hope she likes it when she receives it. I used one of my newest Mag stamps. I love the color combination of pink and green so went with it. lol You can see I added lots of bling! I sprayed the flowers with Glimmer mist and added stickles to the leaves. I did use a paper doily to follow the sketch but it seems to be lost in the midst of all the flowers. This is the first time I have used my old but never been used MS butterfly punches. Thank you so much for stopping by.
