Friends and Flowers

What would we do without friends?  I have many acquaintances but only a few close friends.  Unfortunately, my closest friend lives over 2000 miles away now.  I hope to see her this summer and made this card with her in mind.
I used a lot of products from the Kraft Outlet on this card.  The card base is Light Kraft.  The light panel is Buff Ivory on which I sponged some distress ink.  The crumpled flowers are made out of BrownKraft Text.  I cut them out with Spellbinder large scallop dies then sponged them with two different colors of distress ink.  "Friends" is stamped on a Small Grungy Prim Tag.  I love how the center of the tag is not stained and seems to highlight the word.
I wish you could see the embossing on the paper lace.  It is cut with a die and has the pretties pattern.  The other die I used is the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish for the green flourishes and leaves.   The Black Eyed Susan stamp is Mark's Finest.
The challenge at the Kraft Journal is to make a card with the theme of Anything Girlfriends.  We would love to see your entries.
