Friends Are Flowers That Never Fade

Time for a new card featuring an image from Stamping Dragon Designs. You can shop their store, here. I've used Friend Word Art and colored it with Promarkers. I decided to try something new and do the lace up technique up the side of the card. I'm not sure how well I like the way it turned out. I wasn't meaning to go for the simple look, but that's what it ended up to be. I started to add something else to it, but then I was afraid I'd ruin it. My card fits the Twisted Card Sketch at Twisted Sketches.

The glittery sparkly paper is from a new glitter paper stack I just bought. The ribbon is from my stash. The holes for the lacing were punched using the Crop O Dile Big Bite.

Oh, before we go on to challenges I wanted to mention the wonderful people at Letraset, makers of Promarkers, who are sponsoring the Moving Along With The Times challenge blog, this week! What a fab prize.
