Hello my friends! I was looking for some inspiration over the weekend and turned to some card sketches on Pinterest I had found a while back.  And while I ended up not using any of them, it brought back some mojo and I came up with this friendship card....

I started with a white base cut 5" by 10" scored and folded at 5" for a 5x5 square card.  I used Tim Holtz Peeled Paint distress ink over the entire front surface to give it more of an aged feel instead of the crisp clean white.   I love the papers on this and thought they were perfect for that distressed feel.  I cut strips 1x4 3/4, distressed the edges and inked with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint distress ink and adhered down.  I started with the two end strips and eyeballed the center strips.

Bo Bunny Little Miss Collection 6x6

The crochet trim is one I picked up at Hobby Lobby a while back.  It's a white trim that I inked with the tea dye distress ink using a sponge dauber.  The stamp is from Close To My Heart, D1542, For a Friend Occasions

 This stamp set coordinates with the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge.  I don't have this one yet (soon soon!!!), so I stamped the image on cream card stock and fussy cut it out.  Then I inked it with more tea dye distress ink.  I adhered that to another piece of pattern paper from the same collection and fussy cut again leaving a little border.  I attached to the card with foam tape for dimension.

Isn't this paper SO pretty!!!

For the inside, I used another of the patterns from the same collection, distressed and inked the edges with tea dye distress ink.  I punched a 3" circle from cream cardstock, inked the edges with more tea dye distress ink for a place to write a message.

I just love the way this card came out!  I hope you like it too!  Hope you all have a wonderful day!!
