Blessed with Friends

Good morning! I don't know about you - but I have definitely been blessed with some amazing friends in my life! This card expresses it exactly:

Now, I don't normally combine two different challenges with separate inspiration photos - but both of these challenges complimented each other so well! So I went with it!

The first one is the current Cure for the Monday Blues - loved the gold, the dots, the touch of black - such an elegant and pretty picture:

Next up, the Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge - on this one I loved the cluster of elements in the middle, the sparkle, the bit of woodgrain, and all that glorious white space! 

I started off by cutting Paper Smooches Deco Bag die from vellum, then heat embossed the first part of the sentiment from Spiritual Sampler in white on the front of it. Die cut the Friend Word Die from glimmery gold cardstock and glued that on the front as well. Put in a bunch of gold confetti from Pretty Pink Posh (LOVE!) and sewed it close with a few messy machine stitched lines. Die cut some black cardstock and that pretty gold dot paper from MME with a couple of Lil' Inker's Dies, and layered a cardbase I made with Avery Elle's white woodgrain cardstock. Finished off with a tiny Tim Holtz paper clip, some sparkly gold thread, and a tiny enamel dot!

Thanks for dropping by today! Have a wonderful day!
