Friends Are Forever...

Hope you are able to watch my video to see how this card came together!
Something To Celebrate, Cricut, Friendship Card
I created this card for a bunch of challenges that I will list below.  I bought a new paper pack from Hobby Lobby during one of their 50% off sales, it is the Khloe Lane pack and it is super fun paper!  I wanted to use it for this card so this is what I came up with some of the different patterns from that pack.  I used Something To Celebrate and George to cut the cute little birds and the two circles.  My banners I just free-handed along with the triangles/corners.  I attempted some faux stitching, my first time, and it was a lot easier than I had anticipated.  I like how it turned out.  The embellishments came from Michael's; a pack of green paper flowers and a pack of flat back pearls for $1.50 each - can't beat that!  My stamp comes from a Fiskar's set and I used ColorBox Chestnut Ink.  The circles and birds are popped up using some foam tape.  The inside is super simple, I just made some more banners from the scraps left over and put a mat together for handwriting a little note.  I also did faux stitching on the inside to carry over the look.  I am planning on sending this card to a friend of mine who recently moved out of state that I have known for over 25 years - so basically forever!
Here are the challenges:
BBTB2 - Use a Bird
Craftin' Desert Divas - Anything Goes
Paper Playtime - Use Pearls
Little Scrap Pieces - Anything Goes
HIMCR - Thread/Stitching
