Forever Friends

Hi everyone, back to card making today with a card for Dutch Dare where the challenge is 'a card for a boy/man', don't know if I'm in time for this one but hopefully I am. I've used the little workman Forever Friends stamp which is cut out with nestabilities, pencil coloured and blended with Sansodor. The image is layered over a mat of shimmery, pewter coloured punched card and under that a layer of white card embossed with a cuttlebug folder. The sentiment is a doodlebug rub on and the dots doodled with a sharpie marker. TFL and catch up with everyone over the next few days.

Back soon,
