Friends

I created a card today for the City Crafter Challenge which is to use two ribbons and nine words or more.  Perfect for Leap Day!  Happy Leap Day to everyone! Enjoy your extra day. :) I also used the sketch from Mojo Monday #230 as my design.

This card is inspired by the ever so talented Jacqueline and includes a beautiful wine label butterfly. Thank you Jacqueline for sharing wine labels with me.

The papers come from a prize I won from Snazzy's in playing in their first challenge. They are gorgeous papers and I also received some wonderful stamps. (Yet to be inked up and can't wait to use them!). The reason I was playing there was because of another friend Lesley (very talented) who is on their design team.

The card:
The verse from Verses Rubber Stamps - A Friend Strengthens - FS1134-A  is very appropriate. 

I used my much loved Hero Arts Hydrangeas and Butterflies to stamp over the paper.  The diamonds in the background is a new stencil from The Crafters Workshop that I bought to play with. I love the distressed effect and will be playing with it some more.

Thanks for stopping by!
