Friend Card

I'm finally back at it again.  Personal matters have kept me from cardmaking and posting but things have settled down some and I can get back to doing the things I love.  I will be busy next week cleaning out and repairing my parents house with 3 of my brothers and my sister, so I won't be able to do any crafting which means I need to get my card making done ahead.  Since 3 of my children have August birthdays, I had to do that anyway, plus I want to continue to enter FCCB challenges and today's card is one for there.

The challenge this week is to make a friend card.  I love the saying "If friends were flowers, I'd pick you" and based my card on that.

This is what I call a Monarch card since the size is 7" by 3 1/2".  I have my computer set to print sentiments on different size papers, and so I printed the inside sentiment on a 7 x 7 piece of white cardstock.  The green polka dot from PTI's Bitty Dot stack is cut 7" x 3 1/2".  The white middle portion was printed on the computer and then border punched.  The flowers are from Kate's ABC - all layers cut except for the center dot which is cut with a hole punch  The large flower is is cut at 3" and the other two at 2 1/2".  The paper is from a strip stack of Coredinations ColorCore, except the green which was a scrap.  I did not make the green layer for the bottom flower since I did not need the extra stem.  I like simple and this is typical of the cards I like to do.
