Whiff of Joy Challenge - Friendship

We have such a lovely theme for this weeks Whiff of Joy Challenge - Friendship. What a fab reason to make and send a card to someone special.

And it's another combo (Oh no I hear you all groan)!! I've used the fab sketch on I heart 2 stamp, and have also used the gorgeous blue and green colour combo on Colour Create (I really do enjoy working with colour challenges, sometimes they are so easy peasy like this weeks and others really challenge the grey matter). So this is a triple today.

A wee close up of the flowers, love these embossed Prima flowers, they are just so pretty.

Another plain and simple inside - I was in such a rush I didn't even have time to think of a sentiment to stamp inside).
