My Best Friend's Valentine

Happy Saturday everyone! It's time for another weekly challenge at Our Creative Corner. Sharon Wheet, of Designs By Sharon, hosts again, and this week she wants you to create something for your "Best Friend", and be sure to have flowers on it. Make something for your bestie, and show them how much you care!
For my card I decided to go Graphic 45, as it matched my Whatnots image perfectly, after I added some red with a pigmented marker. I added background stamping and a sentiment with some Tim images. Crackle, stickles, and some bling finished it off. It fits my bestie Jen perfectly. She is simple, colorful, and fun, just some of the reasons why I love her so! I am also submitting this to the Gingersnap Creations Challenge for "words of wisdom".

    How are you my friend?
    Thanks for liking my card and your lovely comment... I have to reciprocate and say yours is such an interesting piece, when you first look at it you see the two little girls, but the longer you look you can see all the other elements, from your many layers to the written words and embellishments, I love cards that have so much detail to them.... you could look at this for hours and enjoy it immensely.
    Have a great weekend.
