I made this friendship/thank you card to give to my girlfriend who has been an amazing support to our family as we continue to go through the ups and downs as we care for a family member who was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness in Feb 2012. I am so lucky to have such a beautiful and caring person in our lives. Even though my girlfriend lives thousands of miles away, we often chat on the phone and I always feel so much better afterwards.
The main image is a pre-coloured topper from Lili of the Valley UK. The sentiment is also by LOTV and was stamped using Versamagic Pretty Petunia chalk ink. I used my Martha Stewart Lace Heart edge punch to punch the yellow heart (ie: the heart is the leftover punchie) which is popped up dimensionals. I added Kindyglitz Crystalina glitter glue to the heart, butterfly and all the flower petals and the teddy's cheeks (not that you can see it in the photo as the weather was so dull and difficult for photography - it is winter where I live at the moment). I corner-punched the topper using a Stampin' Up corner punch.
The designer paper is digital by NitWit Collections -Just Ducky Too. The white embossed base is a 6" x 6" embossing folder by Crafter's Companion - Embossalicious - Floral EF6.
The yellow organza ribbon was added in two separate elements and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy; I added Fray Stop to the cut ends to stop them from fraying.
