Crazy 4 Challenges 170

Crazy for Challenges had a new challenge, well for me anyway, it was called Raising the Bar.  What you did was go and look at one of the design team members, Bar's Paper Pursuits  blog and CASE one of her cards.  I had a lot of fun looking at her blog and I finally chose this one to case - Hi Sweet Friend - Jan. 6, 2013, it is a very sweet card.  For mine, I used Unity Stamp Co. 's Stamp of the week, Hello Pretty.  The paper are from a Colorbok Vintage Rose stack.  I used a Martha Stewart punch, Heidi Swapp edge distressers, cheap pearls.  My ribbon is from Whimsy Stamps and the lace and buttons are from my mom's stash that I got when we cleaned out her house.

I really hope you like this card, I love it and I especially made it for a friend who needs a little TLC right now!!


( I am also going to enter this in Friends With Flair at Unity this week)
