A Cherished Friendship

Hi everyone! I'm so excited this is a short work week and that I've a couple extra days off to hang out with my husband and make cards! This is a card I created just for fun using the Crocus Flower from the A Year In Flowers I clear stamp set by Flourishes. The sentiment is from the Iris digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry.

My card base is black cardstock layered with white cardstock and strips of patterned paper with stitching around the edges. The shadow layer is Wild Wasabi finished on both sides using the Cornice Edge Punch. I wrapped black grosgrain ribbon around the shadow layer and added a pretty bow in front. The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in using copic markers.  To embellish the card I added a silver rhinestone in each corner.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
