The Sweetness of Friendship Pocket Card

Here's a card I created for my daughter. She wanted something special to give to her pastor's wife. I had one K & Company 3-D sticker left, so I built the card around it. This My Mind's Eye pattern seemed to fit the bill perfectly for the base. Some scraps on my desk worked for the tag and die cuts. I loved the mix. Can you tell I'm totally smitten with teal? It's my very favorite color at the present time. It works so beautifully with a neutral color like this beige or a gray.

I used my Alterations Distressed Doily again and Courtyard.

Two Petaloo Botanics blooms, I Am Roses yellow rose buds and bronze metal leaf from The Funkie Junkie Boutique. These leaves are sturdy, but I was able to shape it a bit with my needle nose pliers.

A Prima Pebble with a scrap of the MME paper.

I few I Am Roses leaves mixed in to fill in the gaps.

A bronze eyelet and yellow seam binding bow complete my tag. I used Walnut Stain Distress ink on all the paper edges.

I'm entering the following challenges:
