Friends.

This is a card I made for a swap back  in April. I have heard from my partner in New Zealand that it has been received so am safe to show as I know that Dawn has a blog too. You  had 4 different themes to choose from and you could incorporate them all into your card or just use some. I went with the colour palette of pink/light blue/yellow, an umbrella  and the sentiment Friends. This card came together largely from stash sat on my desk. The lady with the umbrella was the fourth tap transfer design that I made for the tag swap which I have already shown. I only needed 3 tags to send so this one was a spare. I cut the tag down by using a Sizzix Framelits 657905 which in turn left me with a picture frame shape to be used at a later date. The lady is a freebie digi from here. The backing paper is a freebie from here and has the corner swirl incorporated already into the design.
The printed paper that I did the transfer onto is a freebie from a magazine. The flower has been in my stash for ages and matched the ribbon perfectly. A flat pearl to the centre finished it off.
