Friendship Tulle and Text

** This card was selected as City Crafter's Spotlight Artist pick Thank you so much...I am truly honored again and again**

How about that title?

Popping in with a spring greeting for a friend.  I started by piecing together a piece of patterned paper to a piece of cream cardstock that has been stamped with a scripted text from Hero Arts.
A doily was added and slightly tinted using Antique Linen by Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  A length of seam binding was added and tied into a fussy bow adding some lavender tulle, button, twine, and a hand stamped sentiment tag by Wilson Designs Spring Silhouettes
A cardstock die cut from K & Company was added to the card front placing a beautiful bloom to the center adding two die-cut leaves from a page of a vintage book further embellishing with two sweet paper roses. 
I was inspired by the current City Crafter Challenge use text and tulle. 
Playing in Paradise - Friendship
Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge - All from the snippet pile! 

I am so thrilled to share that this card was named Super Nova Winner at Papercraft Star. You have no idea how much it means to me, so thank you!
Thanks for popping by!
