Beautiful Friendship ♥︎

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're having a blessed week. I'm popping in today to share a card celebrating the gift of friendship. Truly the friendships are the sweetest and loveliest part of the crafty journey. I made this to ensure a crafty pal knows just how much she is treasured by me and all who know her. ♥︎
Nature's Garden is one of the newest Crafter's Companion collections and to say I am enamored would be an understatement. It is endlessly beautiful! The Cottage Window is exquisite in design and I couldn't resist tucking a sweet kitty within it. (The kitty is from the Create-a-Card Fireplace Accessories Christmas set.) The sweet birdie and smallest butterfly are also from the Cottage Window. I love the little added elements that come with it. And oh how pretty are the papers in this collection! So much to love.
The floral arrangement is comprised of the four Stamp and Die flowers in the collection. They are stunning and perfectly represent ever-blossoming friendship love. I used Harmony Quick-Dry Ink Pads for a tonal design. The Doily Border is my new favorite border! I suspect you will see it regularly. ;) I layered two Beautiful Butterflies atop it for a double dose of whimsy.

The Friend sentiment is from the Gemini Grand Decor set, which came with the Limited Edition Gemini Junior that was recently on HSN. My precious hubby blessed me with it, for which I am grateful. ♥︎

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a sparkly day! ♥︎
