A Friend Indeed

I am really enjoying these square cards. I'm going to have to break down and buy more square envelopes. There's just something about the slightly larger canvas that I like. This card is for my March Grab Bag Swap. I haven't done my cards for February but I was stressed this week and really wanted to colour these images to relax. The designer paper also came in my package. I goofed and lost the sentiments that were stamped in the package. Luckily, I have Wonderful Words and was able to stamp them directly onto the card.

The flowers are my attempt at recycling. They were donated to my school by a store that had used them in a window display. However, they hadn't been used for art projects for a couple of years so I recycled them for my cards. The brads had been a gift.

The Sketch comes from Friday Sketchers - Challenge #90.
