A Friendship card

For today's card, I dug really deep into my stash, and pulled out the remains of an old Hot Off The Press sentiments booklet and  the snippets from a Paper Pizzazz 12x12 pad that I think was called something like Tiny Prints.

I find the sentiments are usually rather "flat" in appearance when used on a card, but this time I not only inked the edges but added some stamping, to really "take ownership" as they say in BS-ese, of the design.

Lots and lots of layering, lots of inky edges, a bit of punching and some ribbon and buttons added together to complete the card. I decorated the inside as well, to use "part 2" of the sentiment. Obviously the inside  needs to be kept flatter, plus I wanted to make sure there was one relatively plain, uncluttered panel for the sender to write in. And the layout is slightly different simply because I was using up snippets so by the time I got to the inside, I had to juggle around with what was left.

I'm joining in the following challenges:
