Friendship is.......

Happy Tuesday! Today I have another multi~challenge card. First off the challenge over at Stampavie is "In the Garden". I thought this image from Sarah Kay was perfect and I chose a sentiment with the word flowers just in case! (LOL) The challenge over at color create is blue and white with the extra as vintage. Since it is summer I hate distressing my edges with brown ink (like I always do in the other seasons LOL) so I rubbed them with my scissors and added some crackle paint to them. The cracks were not so obvious so I HAD to rub on a little distress ink. I think it still gives it a good vintage look. I also added some lace and pearls in there for good measure.
This is another card I plan to put images and such in so I followed Camilla's tutorial here on how to make this ~ love the way it turned out!
(Thanks Camilla)

Paper: K & Co.
Inks: distress inks
Accessories: Pearls ~ Kaiser Crafts, lace ~ stash, frond punch ~ MS, flowers ~ Prima, Heartfelt sentiment ~ Hero Arts, Friendship sentiment ~ Papertrey


I have decided also to enter this in for the DT call over at Stampavie!! They are looking to replace Claudia!! I know those are big shoes to fill but I had to try it out!!
Thanks so much for looking and I hope everyone has a beautiful day!!
