Simon says love your friends :)

Hi everyone,

A quick post to share a card I made for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, which this week is 'You gotta have friends', a lovely idea for a challenge to create something for a friend.

And here's what I came up with...

This is actually an acetate card that I planned on being clear, but I made a last minute change and decided to add that lovely pool glitter card on the back - I'll post pics of the card as I planned it also, and see which you prefer.

The stamp set I used is Avery Elle's 'Red & Goldie', which I LOVE!!!!  It is just so cute. I coloured my image using distress inks as watercolours and trimmed with a little black card and some yellow polka dot paper from the amazing Lawn Fawn 'Lets polka' pad.  

I finished the card with some cream twine and a small wood veneer heart which i coloured and clear heat embossed.

Here is the card before I added the pool glitter card, I'm still undecided which one I prefer as I do love an acatate card, but I do really like the contrast between the pool and the yellow.  Hmmm, what do you think?

I hope you like it, please feel free to leave a comment.
