A card for a friend.....

Hi Susan here....

I have only been working at my new job for a few months now and have made some really nice friends, one young friend is leaving the store this week and I wanted her to have a card off me. Her name is 'Tram', pronounced 'Chum' and she is a really nice girl, always helpful and funny and made me feel part of the 'family' straight away.

Hope you like your card Tram......

My backing paper is from my stash, we bought a few sheets of this 12x12 paper when on holiday in USA and kept pulling it out and stroking it, you all know what I mean, but it is such a gorgeous paper I couldn't resist using just a tiny square of it for my card, of course when we get down to the last piece that won't be touched!!
My doiley is from a Marianne die that does several layers, and embosses as well, this is the middle layer.
The ribbon, lace and pearls are as usual from our local market.

This beautiful little stamped image is from Lili of the Valley and isn't she just gorgeous, I have used promarkers to colour and shade this time and love the effect.
My ticket sentiment has been designed by Lexi Lee and available from Fairy Dust Crafts.
My butterfiles are made using a punch, inks, glitter and pearls.

My flowers are a mix, the smaller roses and buds are from Hobby Craft, the large flower I have made using a die, card, inks and a bit of patience, my leaves have been made using card, deckle scissors and inks.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, and for all your wonderful comments.

Love and hugs
