Here is the card I made:
My card base and mats are SU Soft Sky and the patterned papers are from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden 6x6 pad. I stitched around the border and distressed all the edges with a scissors and Antique Linen Distress Ink. My sweet friendship image is Carrie Swan Princess from Elphine House. I stamped her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics. I added the grass with Copics, too, then lightly sponged a cloudy sky with Soft Sky ink. I ink-distressed the image panel and framed it with a Spellbinders Floral Oval diecut. The sentiment is from Create With TLC. That got a little distressing, also. I finished my card with some vintage seam binding ribbon, a pearl pin and a few roses from my stash.
