Card for a very special friend

Good afternoon bloggers, a bit late in the day for me but never mind! 
I made this for a friend just because I wanted to let her know how special she is.


I used this sunflower image and the flutterby from my new Stampendous clear stamps set, coloured with copics of course. SU stamp and punches for the sentiment and Martha Stewart punches for the rest.


For the inside, I used paper created from one of my own sunflower photographs and my friend Pat's fence. I lifted the verse inside from a card on Nathalia Castellon's blog many moons ago because I loved it, and I felt that this was the card to use it in. I know my friend has received the card so I am able to safely show it now :o)

Hi Jackie, beautiful card - love, love, love the inside - so clever. And the verse is beautiful. Thanks for your comment on my latest post - I was in too much of a hurry to get out into the sunshine and did not check what I'd written as I usually do. Otherwise I might have caught my blooper - of course, it's now been amended. Hope you're haveing a great day. Elizabeth xx
