You Have to be my Friend...

This is my second post today. I wanted to enter CASology's Challenge for week 130 - Friend.  I've had this stamp for years and have never used it. I bought it with my best friend in mind.  We have been friends since we were 9 years old. Now we're grandmothers together, so you know this sentiment is oh so true!

I used water color paper and embossed it with dots. Then I wet the paper and painted it with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.  I stamped the sentiment in Hero Arts Orange Soda ink. The flowers were cut with a die, but I don't know what it is. I inked the edges of the flowers and added a bit of bling. All paper is from my stash.

I'm also entering 4 Crafty Chicks #230 - Best Friends and Uniko Studio Challenge #17 - Love & Friendship.

The color combo is fabulous and oh boy that sentiment is so true! lol I have a friend that I've been friends with since the 5th grade, so I know this sentiment to be true. I love how you embossing and water colored your background Sheila and I love your flowers. Hugs, Brenda
