For a Special Friend

Hi Folks
Had a busy day at work today so just settling down to have a look at some of your lovely blogs.  Things are a bit hectic here at the moment, with one thing and another, so apologies if I don't get round to visiting your blogs as much as I would like.  

My card share for today is one I made for one of my daughters to give to a friend.

I have used a decoupage image and papers from the Lucy Cromwell collection from Papermania.  I have had this papercrafting set for a couple of years now so thought I ought to start using it.  I used kraft card for all the matting as I love the combination of pink and kraft card together.  For embellishments I added some lovely metal corners, a ribbon box type bow, some flowers and some punched butterflies.  I did add some stickles around the sentiments and some liquid pearls to the main decoupage topper.  I think it has rather a spring like feel to it.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I look forward to reading all your comments.
