A Friend Touches Your Heart

I love this sentiment.  I've had it for ages and it's one of my favorites.  And it's so true, isn't it?  Friends truly do touch your heart.  I think that's why I love this sentiment so much. 



Denami Designs Rubber Stamps is having a color challenge and I wanted to enter.  Unfortunately, my Denami stamps are for special occasions -- like Christmas and Halloween.  Since their color challenge is white, black and magenta, I didn't think my Denami stamps would work very well.  So I decided to use this sentiment and make it the focal point of my card.  

I used my embossing folder to give the white background some texture.  I used my Nestabilities to cut out my sentiment layers.  I added some ribbon and a bow.  Then I punched out my flowers and added a little pearl to the center.  Easy peasy, huh?  Since this was such a simple card, I decided to dress up the inside of it, too.


Thanks for stopping by!

It is a lovely sentiment and I love how you made it the focus of the card. Perfect colour combo and the bloom in the centre of the bow looks really pretty.
