To My Wonderful Friend

Hi there! One of my goals this year is to "play" more with my most favorite challenges...and that's what this card is all about!

I love making these 'quilted' look cards and this one is no exception. I used three different embossing folders to create my textures and added a strip of lace cut from a Spellbinders die. Then some polka dotted white ribbon and a hint of pink with this sheer ribbon. The flower image and sentiment are from Flourishes new Butterflies & Blossoms set. Pearls are the finishing touch on this one!

Challenges:
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #99 - Flowers
Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger - Photo Inspiration
City Crafter Challenge #38 - Winter White
Creative Cottage #30 - Something New (Stamp Set)
Simon Says Stamp - New Beginnings (friend's new beginning)
Prairie Fairy Fridays #43 - New Beginnings
Dutch Dare #94 - New Beginnings
Really Reasonable Ribbon #15 - Something New (stamp set) + Ribbon
