Friendship Card

This month my friendship card was created for Katrin, she lives in Germany.
I decided to use my stitching stencil by Ann's Paper ArtAND002 what a wonderful way to create a quick card as all I needed to do was run it through my big shot!
 don't worry it will go through all machines.
I decided on a blue and pink theme for my card this
Threads are Mettler Polysheen, 1761, 3853, 3951, 6133.
The flowers are Tim Holtz "Tattered Flower Garland" this die set has a few different styles of flowers  and leaves on it which come in all different sizes, 
it is worth buying if you find one.
The flowers are coloured with "Tattered Rose" distress ink.
 I added some glitter around the edge.
The Hummingbird is by Cheery Lynn, I added "Frayed Burlap"distress ink on the beak..
The butterfly is from my stash.
Pearls and Cosmic Shimmer "Vanilla" have also been added to the card.
Background card is by Lili of the Valley paper pad called "Bear Necessities".

I really did have a lot of fun creating this beautiful card and I hope that you also like it.

Friendship Card

A beautiful card created with Stitch a Card a491 combined with 
Threads are Mettler Polysheen 0700, 2721, 2905, 5833.
I used Marianne Design "Silver Collection" CR1262 behind the decoupage
and added Tim Holtz "Frayed Burlap"and some pearls to give it a aged looked.
Along the edge of the card I have added a beautiful die by Joy! 6002/0100.
It is a older die yet one that I think that every-one should have
 in their collection of dies.
I added Tim Holtz "Dusty Concord"and some pearls to the Joy! die.

I do enjoy creating cards with the Stitch a Card- pre pricked toppers
They are especially great for those people that don't have the time to prick a card.
