The Blessings of Friendship

What would I do without my friends? Life could be so very difficult without someone to share it with! So many have touched my life these past weeks as our family has been preparing for the upcoming wedding. Thanks to all of you, you know who you are! On to my design!

I wanted to participate in today's Sketch challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. I also wanted to use one of my new September Our Daily Bread design three releases. I choose the "Friendship" set.

I began with SU Chocolate Chip cardstock for my base. I then layered it with PaperLoft's Backcountry Mountain Meadow cardstock. I followed the sketch, though used just the dp for my panels. The panels are layered with distressed SU Mellow Moss.

I stamped my image with Memento Rich Cocoa ink onto a scrap of cream colored paper. I used SU's distressing tool on the edges, then added Hero Art's White and Cream Art Flowers along with Jolee's Jewels crystals to finish the panel.

I hope you like it! Have a great Wednesday!

I love this card. It reminds me of my dresses when I was just a little girl. It'll be wonderful if you can add paper crafting video tutorials to your blog. I just love seeing talented hands at work!
