2sketches4you Challenge/ Laura's sketch 18


I love the sketches over on the 2sketches4you challenge blog, this is my attempt at the latest one??
Used a 5inch square white card (my favorite at the moment) cut a black mount slightly smaller, then a slightly smaller patterned mount from "Basic Grey" "Two Scoops". I embossed the "Friend" using my "Cuttlebug" and an embossing folder, cut out the word and filed it to show the white core. The large "pink" matt is cut on the cuttlebug using a large scallop circle then embossed using "Swiss Dots" I pricked holes around the outside and drew a line with a "sakura" gel pen to try to make it look like stitching??The flowers are real pressed flowers that I have had for years, two pieces of ribbon from stash (Love ribbon) and a small "Forever" stamp on white card and cut out just around the writing.
