Always Together

There's a wonderfully supportive art group I belong to called Bella Creations. Please come check us out, there's so much to see and do, even prizes to be won! For the May "Bella Muse" challenge, we were asked to create something with the darling image of the two friends together in the grass. I created this card using some pressed flowers that I have had for years. For the past several years, I am following this motto: if I have it... USE it and then I tell myself, what are you waiting for? LOL. These sweet roses were just the thing I needed to use!

This  simple little card started with framing the image that I colored with pencils and put in an ink kissed embossed frame. I layered red lace, old postage stamps and some labels from Artchix Studio. On a ticket I stamped "Always together" and added the pressed flowers.If you read the tag very closely it says Always together, paper art and that makes me think of you!
Hope you are always together with a dear friend.
Yours Truly, gerri

  4. Just perfect Gerri! I love those pressed flowers and the colors and composition on this are truly perfect! I think we all are guilty of saving, so glad to see you using, lol. (Sorry I missed some posts Blogger has been down and would not allow me to comment, catching up is going to take too long, I am probably just going to go forward) I know you will understand. ~Diane

    I missed out on this one at Bellas but I agree, a wonderfully supportive group of people.
    The elements you selected couldn't be more perfect. You never put a foot wrong with all you create.
