My Bestie's Birthday

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! On May was Ivonne's Birthday. As you know, she is my partner on this blog, but more importantly she is my best friend and soul sister. I feel so blessed to have her in my life! Even though we are separated by an ocean, she is always in my heart.

We went to Puerto Rico in May for her daughter's graduation, and I was able to give her a card and spend some time together. To celebrate such a joyous occasion, here is the card I made for her.

This card was created using image and sentiment from Stamping bella – "Uptown Girls PATTIE and DOTTIE friends FOREVER"; DP and 3d embellishments: My Mind's Eye "The Sweetest Thing-Tangerine"; Dies: "Nestabilities Floral Oval" and Martha Stewart "Doily Lace". Other embellishments are from my stash. This image was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copic markers.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
