A card for a friend

 Hello bloggers,

Hope you are doing well and enjoying the beginning of the week. I am off to book my table for one of the bazaars tomorrow. I have to be there at 7.30 am so it it will be an early start for me. Let us see how it turns out...

This is a card I made yesterday because I wanted to try out my new stamps from Spellbinders. I am going to give this card to a lovely friend who has her birthday tomorrow.

Base card stock - pink which has been covered with designer paper that came free with a magazine subscription.
Nestie - Spellbinders
Stamp - Spellbinders (cling right - saw it at the scrap booking corner and grabbed it for dear life!!! Lol)
Used Brilliance pearlised lavender
Ribbon - from stash
Flowers - made by me 
Leaves - MS leaf punch
Crystals - Prima

Hope my friend likes it - she is a such a sweet lady and has a daughter who is Aleeza's age (almost) so that makes it even better.
Will come and visit soon.

Oh I love this one-- what an idea to use 2 types of papers on each half of the card in such a manner and how lovely your ribbon looks- how do you get it to look so neat- I am never happy with the way I get ribbon to look on my projects and so never use them-- do tell me how you get it so flat and neat

Oh WOW Monica, this is fantastic. A very delicate, pretty and feminine creation. Love the Spellbinder shape, I think that will have to go on my wishlist, haha. Love the shiny part. Those flowers are just SIMPLY AMAZING my friend.
Your friend is very lucky and I am sure she will be thrilled with this card. Happy crafting.

Your friend will love it. Beautiful crunch flowers. Good luck with the show.

Also, last week right after you asked me about my esty shop, I sold 2 items. There is some hope there for me, I think. Talk to you later.

(Be sure and check my post for Friday as I'm using some of the gorgeous flowers you sent me - and paper too!)
