friend 37

Hi there! It's my turn to share a project along with a tutorial for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes
I was inspired to create a greeting card for a special friend:
I think it's important to remind our friends who much we appreciate them and a homemade greeting card made from the heart is a perfect way to do just that. I wanted to create a feminine shabby vibe so, I combined a delicate die cut butterfly and wreath with pretty pastel papers from the Wallflower collection.
I think this card will bring a smile to my friend's face. Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope I have inspired you to give it a try and join along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge!
Be Sweet ;)
