You are a Treasured Friend

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by cutting out a Couture Creations Lasting Love Die (it's a heart). I used this as a mask and inked through it onto Milk Card using Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I moved the mask around so that the pattern was inked all over.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions True Thoughts Stamp Set onto Sky Blue Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Ivory Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Couture Creations Ornate Rectangle Die and inked through the die with Faded Jeans. I put the outer frame aside to use in another project and cut the die again out of Milk Card.

I cut a Couture Creations Lacy 8 Die out of Sky Blue Card. I used the outer frame only and inked around the edges of it with Faded Jeans.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Blue PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
