Friends Forever

This card has to be dedicated to my sisters.  No matter to big or small they are always there.
Forever Friends

I used just love the light blue and teal with gold.  I used Memento Luxe toffee Crunch to stamp the lattes and butterflies for the background.  Still new at this somewhat and not sure of the maker of the stamp (sorry).  I used the gold sticker lace from the Dazzles Christmas collection to highlight the teal band going across the card.   I always try to find a cheaper way to still achieve that elegant look.  So hubby and I found these flower bundles at the Dollar Tree and thought "demo time"  yes we stripped the leaves and flowers off the stems.  I then used a few flower petals and stacked 4 different size layers for my center piece and held it together with a red brad that I used Liquid Pearls along with some yellow flock to make it look more realistic.  This card is also embellished with a gift of a butterfly pin that can be removed and worn. 


The inside caption reads "Sister are the best kind of friends.  Love it!!!  Hope you enjoyed reading and viewing this card.  I would love to read comments good or bad, it's all very helpful and inspires me to (as they used to say at my job) keep on keeping on.  God Bless ya'll and have a wonderful day.


  1. Bobbie this card is beautiful. I love the colors together and I use flowers from the dollar store too and pull them off the stems! Great minds think alike my dear! Your sister (whichever one gets this) will be thrilled. It's beautiful.

  2. Wow Bobbie, this card is beautiful! I love how you stacked the flowers, your background is stunning, that butterfly-wow, love that you can also wear it!! You wooden sentiment is so cool-this card is simply amazing! Thanks for joining us at Jo's FFC;-)
