A Friend

I love this sentiment from Serendipity Stamps, who generously sponsored the Stampin' Sister in Christ Challenge some weeks ago and this was one of the stamps I received.

The sentiment is one of my favourite sayings and it paired beautifully with this bird from DRS Designs. I have had these images stamped and cut out for weeks and am happy to have FINALLY used them on a card! 

The bird is coloured using SU Chalks/Pastels and a Blender Pen and had 3D Kindy Glitz added.

The sentiment has been cut out using the Spellbinders Labels Four Nestabilities and the Die used as a mask before the sentiment was taken out.  My Die was cut out using the Grand Calibur.

The pearl flourish is from Want2Scrap - is didn't take long for this to become another addiction - their bling is divine!!

I want to say a special thank you to Theresa Blake-Calderini for sending me this gorgeous vintage Flower Frog, when I asked about them on facebook - it came beautifully packaged and her generosity means so much to me.
