A Friend Is …

Hello friends,

Time for a new challenge at Double D Challenges. I am joining Team Darlene for this challenge with the theme of “Friendship”. Looking at the mood board I decided to use the tile with the sentiment as inspiration for my vintage card. Please visit the Double D challenge blog and see more wonderful samples from Double “D”s talented designers and join in the fun!

I used a vintage scrap and designer paper from the Graphic 45 series”Secret Garden” for my background. I then stamped my sentiment on a beautiful oval die cut and layered it with mirror tape on the base card for a bit of dimension. I finished off with wax cord bows, paper roses, pearls, a heart and glitter. This was a  quick and easy vintage card to make and I hope the recipient will love it.

    So beautiful, Amelia, and what an absolutely lovely sentiment! I guarantee the recipient will love it. A tantalizing peek at the inside, too. Your crafting always wows me. Love the die set which I haven’t used in forever, and the way you connected to two twine bows is such a nice touch. It suggests the connection between friends, or maybe I’m just imagining it, but I love that bit.
