A little something for a friend - Handmade card

Dear Paper Lovers,

Another little creation to share made with love. I used the Friendship begins in the heart - Collection for this one. Love love love making cards. I am a very detailed girl, so love adding all those little bits and bobs to my cards and what is a card without a flower or two. Just love my florals. Also a big fan of multi colored diamante and dotted anything. I don't know what it is about dots, but just L - O - V - E them. My favorite colors are purple and the last couple years: Turquoiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiise! 

Read more about this card and the inspiration behind the Friendship begins in the Heart Paper Collection over on my personal blog here
