This week the Polkadoodles Design Team are gathering up images for Friendship cards to inspire you!

I've selected Polkadoodles Sheepy Sheepy Sheep Sheep Spring Easter Printable (say that 5 times fast).   This one  reminded me of my girlfriends as we would pile in a car for a shopping trip or crafting day trip.  

A Perfect Day for Friends!

Let me say that I use Photoshop Elements for my photo editing and layering.  It's especially helpful for this card as I am using several digital packages.  Other programs can be used, I'm not that familiar with them however.  My instructions are specific for PSE.

I started by sizing this image to just under 4" tall.  Next I opened the Magic Garden Soup digital package and selected the whimsical flowers and butterflies and randomly placed them throughout the background of my card front.  I also opened the Rose Budd Craft Digital package and pulled in the tree border background layer. Once I had everything laid out like I wanted it, I printed the card front on Neenah 110# cardstock, then used my Copic markers for coloring.

Separately on another page I used Honeypie Greetings, Just Lovely package and opened the card sentiment, "Your Friendship is Just the Best".  I sized this to small ~ to about 1/2" tall and just under 4" long.

After coloring the image, I used the Gina Marie Designs Nesting Label Three for the decorative edge.  The card base is 5" x 6" and has a side fold.  After covering the front with the small patterned green paper, I added the tall center image and then mounted the sentiment at the bottom with a rectangle matting under it.  After adding tiny black brads at the center of each end, I added a metallic strip to anchor it to the ends of the card.
