Hello again blogging friends. My second card today is for the challenge over at

Creative Knockouts.  Challenge #101.  FRIENDSHIP.

For this card, I have used one of my favourite colour combinations, it is just classy and beautiful, so very effective.
For the centrepiece on this card, I have made the sentiment as the main focal point.

The sentiment reads.  "A FRIEND IS A GIFT YOU GIVE YOURSELF".

It has been double mounted on Black Nand Red card.
I have made a patterned floral  border. All edges have a Silver Deorative Border to highlight and give definition too.
I have used two different sizes of DAISY PUNCH to make the flowers, and I have added Card Candi in the centres.
The foliage is from the Spellbinders Foliage set and the final touch is a Silver Lurex Bow.

Happy crafting everyone, and I hope that you have a lovely weekend.
Lots of love, Sandra xxx

  5. This is a stunning card, Sandra and I am so happy to see you blog. Thank you for visiting me and leaving kind comments. I love it when you visit but understand totally when you cannot. You are one of the nicest blog friends I have and I always think of you so fondly. Life has been so hectic since we moved to Singapore that blogging has kind of been neglected.

    Love and cyber hugs,
