Friends Forever

Happy Friday, all! Here is a card that I made for the Whiff of Joy Tutorials & Inspiration blog. Please hop over here to see the tutorial on how I created the sky.



I used the super sweet Friends Forever - Nora and Ben for my card. Isn't this image just the cutest? I think it's perfect for a anniversary card, too. =)


I stamped the image on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, then cut and embossed it using a Labels Two die. The image is then colored with Copic markers. The heart dies for the sentiment piece are from Papertrey Ink.


The patterned paper is from the Lime Twist Fly A Kite collection by My Mind's Eye. I used the Fancy Hearts border die for the paper with kites. The sentiment is from the General Sayings II set also from Whiff of Joy Stamps.

Don't forget to take a look at the tutorial here! =)



Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!
