For a Friend

This is my second post today, for Crafty Sentiments Christmas Preview please scroll down to previous post.

Good morning, well I am back again with my card for the brand new challenge at Lexi's Creations. The theme for this challenge is For a Friend, here is my card:


My mojo has definitely gone walk about since I returned from my holidays, must be all this nice weather, so I have gone for something quite plain and simple. I have used Lexi's A Friend is a Gift Sentiment which you can purchase here from Fairy Dust Crafts.  I have used some pretty metallic foil which I purchased last year at Michaels in America.  I have used Spellbinders Adorning Squares to mat the image on first cutting it out using SB Large Circles.  Two panels of embossed Centura Pearl card.  The butterfly is MB and the flowers SB Homespun.  Ribbon and pearls from my stash.

Our sponsor this week is:


so please go over to the challenge and see what the rest of our lovely DT have done!  You have almost two weeks to enter and we would love to see what you do!

I have scheduled this as I am off out for a girly day of shopping and chatting with a friend!  Whatever you are doing - have fun! Take care xx

Hi Susan
Your card is not so much 'plain and simple' as you describe it - but more stylish and elegant and so beautiful - is how I would describe it :o)
Hope you've had a lovely day.

Well your mojo may have gone walkabout but this would tell me otherwise, it's gorgeous.

Love the fabulous teal colour, and that foil looks great against the centura pearl, which has embossed beautifully.
