Forever friends

Good afternoon friends,

The month is marching on and I still have to get some cards made before 28th. This is one of them.

The progressive challenge at Deedee's Digis for February had the theme Forever Friends. If you had played last month you will have received this lovely set of images and sentiments for this month.

It is so lovely when one can finish a card very quickly, and using the precoloured image 'Hugging Tigers" I was able to do just that.

I followed the sketch from Tuesday morning sketches for my card.

                    I embossed cardstock with a wood grain folder and sponged it with Distress ink. Matted it onto black card.

Cut out a black frame and mounted the round diecut with the precoloured image onto that.

Attached the sentiment with a twine and added 3 buttons.

Yay another project done before the deadline.

Will enter the following challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #289
Deedee's Digi's...Feb progressive challenge
Clear it Out challenge...Animals..stash item ..striped paper. (Not sure if mine qualifies for striped)
