Friends are such a Blessing

Morning all.  Don't Mondays come around quickly?  We have a new Make My Monday Challenge today so I suppose that's a bonus.  This time we would like to see your Friendship cards.  I've been so lucky to make new friends through crafting on the internet and this challenge has been chosen by Debbie, who is one of them.  Living on the other side of the Atlantic we will probably never meet but she is such an inspiration and never fails to offer encouragement.  This card is a tribute to her and my other crafty friends.  

I've used a favourite set from Wplus9 which was just made for this.  I inked the background with distress ink (squeezed lemonade, spun sugar and worn lipstick) and just stamped the blooms around the edge.  I filled in the gaps with a cluster of flowers from an un-named set that I've had forever and never used.  After that I just stamped the sentiment and mounted it on a couple of other inked ovals for the middle of my card.

The gems are from my stash and I'm so pleased with how this turned out.  It's not at all like my usual stuff but I hope it's a fitting tribute to Debbie and the rest of my inspirational crafty friends.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x
