True Friend

I found a few spare minutes to play today now that my kids are back in school- woo hoo!  Of course I'm a bit rusty so had to start out with not one but two different challenges to get going.  Don't complain, you're lucky I didn't do more.  LOL! 

The sketch I used is from this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoast:  SC347.  Love it!  I also decided to "Soften the edges" per Pals Paper Art's PPA108.  I rounded one corner of the card then decided that wasn't quite enough and since the other edges were all glued down I  distressed the rest of the edges instead. 

Here's the inside as well.   Hope you like it.  I'm thrilled with the results!  Even used my new Simply Scrappin' Kit from the Summer Mini Catalog called Playful Polka Dots (page 15) and the new twisted Baker's Twine in Cherry Cobbler.  Finally I added a few rhinestones for a finishing touch.  

Let me know what you think!  Thanks for stopping by.

Ooh, almost forgot... Tiffany Bauer honored me by featuring THIS card of mine as one of her weekly picks on Aug. 14th.  Sorry it's taken so long to acknowledge it Tiffany, and thank you for the honor!
