Friends Are Special Treasures

This card was made for a very special friend who has always been there for me!
I just love this sentiment because I feel it is so true.

My colors were inspired by The Play Date Cafe Challenge #106:

Gray ~ Yellow ~ Pink

I made the flowers with the Prima Donna Petals (MFT) die. I love using this die!
It makes such pretty flowers and it is SO easy to use! 

I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug Leaf/Vine embossing folder. 
I thought this would be cool, since I was making flowers!
The sentiment (Hero Arts) was stamped and then punched with the Decorative Label Punch (SU)
Tip: I punched a label in yellow, too, then cut it in half and adhered to the back of my sentiment label to give it a layered look

It was strange not using any designer paper!
Thanks for stopping by!
Your comments have been so kind!
It just makes my day!

This is more like a piece to be displayed in one's home, Mackie! It is 3D, textural, and beautiful to look at. I'll bet your friend loves it. :)
