Friends to the end

     I am so thrilled to be asked by Cec and the DT girls at Phindys Place to be their Guest Designer again for this weeks challenge.  The challenge itself is to include handmade embellishments on your card.  I chose to make some little seam binding flowers.  I used Glimmer Mist to color two of them and left the large one white.
     I've used more of my My Mind's Eye papers, a paper doily, a few punched flowers and leaves and a cute little laser cut chipboard corner.
     My image is called "Squeezes" and it's colored with Copic markers.  You can find this image and a lot of other cuties at the Phindy's Place store.
     So pop over to The Phindys Place Challenge Blog and link up a card using some handmade embellishments.
     I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Craft Us Crazy--anything goes
Digi Doodle--anythings goes
Aud Sentiments--anything goes
Paper Crafting Journey--anything goes
Digi Stamps 4 Joy--handmade flowers
Creative Card Crew--handmade flowers
