Cut a piece of paper to fit the base card and distress the edges.  Colour the edges with Weathered Wood. 

Stamp image onto card and colour.  Cut out the image using Labels Eight.  With the same die and the plain side of the paper, draw around the die and cut out using scissors.  Mat the image and attach to the base card. 

Attach a piece of vintage lace to the base of the card.  Cover the ends of the lace with a half circle of card covered with some of the FabScraps paper.  Add pearls to the lace if desired.

Stamp the sentiment onto card and cut out using the Standard Circles ensuring the loop for the “h” in friendship is outside the die when you cut the image.  (Bev Rochester has made a very good tutorial of how to do the “out of box” technique – see

Lightly colour the sentiment with the distress inks and mount top left of the base card.

Fit the matted image to the sentiment and attach to the base card.

Add cherry blossom flowers and several punched fronds and add a little stickles to both.
