Friends Forever

I have a fun card with a spring feel to it. I used one of my favorite stencils ever and sponged three colors of distress inks over it. I then added the bold sentiment that is popped up on foam tape. I tried my hand at some loose thread behind the focal point. I think I need more practice with this. :)  Lastly, some clear sequins finish off the card.

Have a blessed week friends!

I really like what you did with the inks, Alanna. Those colors look great and I can see why this stencil is a favorite. It looks so pretty! The sentiment is lovely and the sequins add a lovely sparkle. You'll get the hang of the string(and much quicker than I would), I've no doubt! :)

This is beautiful. I love your color selection. And the string is a subtle addition without overpowering the total card.
