Friends Forever!


Hey everyone!  I made this card several weeks ago for a dear friend far away from the US.  I sure hope she got it by now.

I was so excited to see the new Sarah Kay stamps.  They really are adorable!  I got mine from Stamp and Create.  Lacey is a sweetie and will really go the extra mile for you if she needs to.

I used Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage and K&Co. papers.  The K&Co. has a wash of white acrylic over it to tone it down, it was pretty bright haha!

I used several Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and an LOTV sentiment, Vintage Labels - Occasions.  Oh, and you guys know I almost alway color with distress inks.  The shape is a GoKreate die, LOVE!!!!!!  I did a bit of Frantage on the corner piece and tada! There you have it! I completely forgot to take a picture of the little tag that is tucked in from the top. Oops!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I am almost caught up in my "stuff" I am doing, so hopefully can go visiting you guys very soon!

Hugs, Dena

Beautiful card! I love the idea of doing a white wash to tone down brighter papers. One of these days, I have to try coloring with distress inks. What a beautiful effect it gives.
