Cherish Happiness

I made this card for a dear friend of mine getting inspiration from Melissa Phillips in the June 2010 Cards Magazine.  I layered papers which I inked heavily under the lace.  

The lighting on this photo is horrid but I wanted you to see the card from this angle so you'll have to overlook it.  The flower is one I received in a swap at YPP from Natalie Wathins, thanks Natalie, I love it!  I stuck a stick pin I had made through the flower and lace to finish it off.

The bling inside and out is from Recollections, the butterfly from Websters Pages.  Under the sentiment I took a page from an old novel and tore and inked the edges.  I used Vintage Photo, Peeling Paint and Worn Lipstick Distress inks on the print to give it the same tones as the papers.  The sentiment I printed out on my computer and inked it with the above Distress Inks.

The little ticket is from the Tim Holtz idea-ology line and the stamped sentiment on it was from a set of old Stampin Up stamps I picked up at a garage sale.  The base of the card is Kraft Cardstock.
