We've Been Friends For So Long

We all know it takes a LONG time to Grow OLD friends and how very blessed we are to be able to call someone a true friend.  It is an investment of time, commitment of trust and relationship building from all parties and certainly can be crushed a lot fast than the time it takes to build.

Today's card is made using Canadian Artist Angie Blom's Giraffe Trio  with one really cute sentiment about long time friendships.

To make this card, I actually used the predesigned slimline printout that comes in the digital package.  It is already laid out just as shown with the two giraffe's to the left and three to the right with the sentiment in the middle.  

After printing on Neenah 110# card stock, I colored the giraffe's with my Copic markers and then made the cloudy sky background using my die made stencil paper patterned cloud sky and three shades of chalking Ink by Quick Quotes.

 When completed, I die cut the completed top layer using a Rounded Stitched Rectangle die by Pink & Main.  I mounted the colored image on an 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" slimline coordinating blue card base.  For the final touch I added a small wooden 'love' heart to the bottom left corner.
