Good Friends Are Like Stars

Hi everyone, a little something unBecky like from me. When I got this sentiment sheet from Vilda Stamps, I instantly liked this sentiment, but thought it was too big to go with an image, and then I had a lightbulb moment, do a card with out an image. When I'd calmed down after this thought as I make cards as I colour images in it was a step way out of the box for me, I thought it might just work, please let me know what you think.


It is such a true sentiment, but unlike stars friends come out and shine when you need them too, this year I have needed my friends to be there for me, but only when I've wanted them to, and even with everything happening in their lives they have been. This is not just my friends that I've had for longer than I want to remember, but I'm also lucky to work with some lovely people I count as friends and also my lovely blogging friends that I know are only a message away.

I'm actually really pleased with it this card, but I'm definitely an image girl, so there won't be too many of these, lol. I've used Kit 4 English Texts (V693), stamped it onto Langton Hot Press paper, and when I'd used my nestie to cut it out I used some distress ink. The papers are from Maja Design, again. It was a pad I was in two minds to get.


I've used some brown corrugated cardboard, and distressed it a tad and I've also added some cheesecloth too. The cream guipure and the pom pom trim are from my stash. The roses and cherry blossoms are from WOC. The coffee brown rolled roses and the Cream Chrysanths are form the Ribbon Girl as are the self adhesive pearls. The Orange Prima Kennedy Antique Flower is from Live and Love Crafts.


I'm entering this card into the 'Sentiment' only challenge at My Mums Craft Shop.

Pop back later today as I have some super exciting news that I've been dying to share for a while.

Hugs,

Becky xx
