Embracing Friendship

My word for this year is, "Embrace". I want to embrace my talents, and whatever and whomever is brought into my like...it might be a new experience, a different point of view, a new acquaintance.

To honor the embracing of friendships, I have made a vintage card using my favorite stamps...Crafty Secrets.
Some of my favorite things are on this card:

-Cottage Roses made with Tim Holtz' Tattered Florals Die
-Flourishes (made at the Card Club I attend...not sure what company made this die)
-Trellis made with my new Silhouette machine

I tore the patterned paper, by Colorbok, and inked the edges with Distress Ink in Broken China. Stickles makes the flowers dewy.

I distressed all the edges with my scissors blade.

Tie it up with a ribbon, which I melted with my heat tool to make it ruffly.

Card stock by CTMH...very vintage as it is very old. I have had it for about 13 years. I was a consultant once...and the card stock has a white core so it's very distress-able.

I want to stay true to my word...and embrace the things I love and learn this year.

I love to learn.

I am entering this card in some wonderfully challenging challenges...
