Vintage Friends, New Friends

Hello friends, both vintage and new. I made this card last week for the SCS sketch challenge, it has been sitting in a place of honor above my work area since it was completed. When I make something that I really fall in love with, the "vintage" favorite gets moved on out and the "new" favorite moves on in.
     Something is special about this card, it is a reminder~ for me to cherish my friends, and not to put them on a back burner just because I'm busy. They are important to me, you are important to me. So to all of my friends, the ones I see every day, the ones I rarely have the chance to visit with, and the ones that I share the blogosphere with, vintage and new you are in a place of honor.

card details: I distressed and inked all the edges. the choc chip was inked with very vanilla, I stamped the friends, and the floral panel and inked over the stamping with very vanilla, to soften and give it a patina. the flowers were embossed with Clear powder and cut out. I added stitching on the corners of the panels, and a big chocolate bow, with a twine beribboned button.

I like the color combos, the lavendar really pops against the gentle green background, nuch like it does in nature. I feel attracted to it, like it.
