Friends with Flair!

Hello! Today's card is based on the April Sketch for You to Try. I just love sketch challenges because they give me an idea to think about and play with. Speaking of love, I LOVE the border stamp that I used from Unity's Jan 11 KOM! The text and the flowers just speak to me. I can't believe that I haven't used it before, but I plan to get it inky again in the near future. I used lots of matting and some cutting with deckle edge scissors to make my card. I cut apart the sentiment so that I could fit it just where I wanted it. Don't you love that twine!?! It's called Cappuccino and you can find it at the Twinery! They have lots of fun colors.

Thanks for stopping by!!
