If Friends Were Flowers ...

I made this card to send to Greta for the March Card Chain Challenge using the Theme Options (Spring, Women and Friendship).

I trimmed a piece of dark brown card so it was slightly smaller than the card blank and them trimmed a piece of patterned paper so it was slightly smaller than the brown card.  I attached the patterned paper to a piece of white card and then die cut a stitched circle from the left side.  I placed the paper into my MISTI and stamped the sentiment in the lower corner.  The panel was layered onto the brown card and attached to the card blank.  I die cut the precoloured Lili of the Valley image with the stitched circle and inlaid it into the front of the card.

To make this card I used:
     7" x 5" white matt card blank
     Lili of the Valley 'Best Friends' Art Pad
     My Favorite Things 'Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics' die
     Crafter's Companion 'Sweet Florals' stamps
     Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
     Lili of the Valley 'Antebellum' paper
     Dark brown textured card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - Anything Goes
     Love to Craft - April Anything Goes

This is the lovely card I received from Alex:
