Treasured Friend

I have lots of treasured friends! I have been so blessed and and some of them are You! I have met so many wonderful people online since I started blogging it's been wonderful! All of your comments and thoughts are cherished!
This card I've made for the challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle - Feel Good with a Friend! I love to have "tea"parties in my yard with my friends and these birds seem to be enjoying some friend time as well.  This week we are being sponsored by Happileigh Scrappin'. She has some amazing digis and if you play you'll be up for a chance to win all the digis that the design team have used! That's 7!!! So what are you waiting for, link up your cards!
 I have chosen this wonderful water fountain called Splish Splash, that is actually pre-coloured!  I printed it off and realized that the ink was running out so the colours didn't come through as they are originally.  I was getting ready to panic (since it was late and all the stores were closed so I couldn't replace the ink right away...yes, I'm rambling) then I looked at it again and realized that it had a really nice pastel feel to it. So here it is!  I layered the image on some textured cardstock and punched the side and added some bright blue ribbon to highlight the birds.  The pink flourish paper is from my stash and the sentiment is from The Paper Garden.  I figure with the water it needed some added bling for sparkle so I added some blue rhinestones.
Thank you for dropping by and know that I love it each time that you do!

This is so lovely Jennifer! The soft colors are so pretty and I love that punched border. If my hubby saw your irises in the previous post he might just snatch them. He loves irises. :-) They're gorgeous and one of my favorites too. Happy crafting sweetie!

I sooo like the softness of this image and the pink and blue that you used with it. A nice example of how sometimes what we initially think is a negative can be a blessing. You've done this image proud, lady. I LUV it!

I love the soft, sweet feel of this card. I love it that your printer was running out of ink because the image printed in these colors really worked out great!
