Friendship

My card today began with the backing paper, it came free in a magazine, a whole book full of beautiful papers. When I saw this one it made me think of the Sizzix die watering cans I cut out light years ago. I think it goes really well with the paper. I've used a Lacy Labels cut from turquoise card as my frame layered onto green paper. the flowers are from Art Nouveau. I made the sentiment in my graphics program and mounted this on matching turquoise card. Green ribbon from my stash finish off my card. I must be going mad as I'm not at all competitive but I'm entering this card in these challenges.
