Friends Blog Hop

Hello Friends,

Today I'm participating in another Blog Hop from VCRocks. Today's theme for the Blog hop is "Celebrate Friendship".

What could be more special than telling your friends how much you love and appreciate them by giving them a beautiful hand made card?

My card design comes from a sketch from the "Stampin' gals gone wild" sketch challenge for the week of August 14th, but I was kind of late making this card, so I didn't post it there.
The stamp sets I used are Butterfly Basics, and Blessings from Heaven.

The cardstock I used is: Blushing Bride for the base, Whisper White, Mossy Meadow, and Night of Navy.

The Designer series paper is called English Garden.

I embossed the large white paper with an embossing folder called "Elegant Dots" from Stampin' Up!.

The butterfly is in Night of Navy ink, and I cut it out using a  framelit that matches the Butterfly Basics stamp set.

The only embellishment that I used was the small row of pearls on the butterfly body.

This is a snapshot of the inside of the card. It is stamped in the Mossy Meadow ink.

I hope you take time to appreciate your friends today, and tell them how much they mean to you.

Now , hop on over to VC Rocks and look at some more beautiful friendship cards.
