Friendship card....


I have made a card for someone who is so very sweet and lovely. I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress inks. I have distressed the papers with Tim's distressing tool and distressed them with vintage photo. The flowers are punched with EK Success retro flower. The tiny tags are quickutz. I have added lots of stickles to my card.

Thank you so much for looking and have a wonderful weekend!
