April FaceBook Challenge - Lou

Hello All
 
Louise, here again to share with you a quick project I made up with this months Mad About Scrappin's FaceBook challenge which was to use this quote
 
"Good Friends are like stars.
You don't always see them,
but you know that they
are always there"
 
On a page, card or OTP item.
 
The first thing that popped into my mind with this quote was to make a card for one of my dear friends and this is what I made.  I love bold colour, so these papers from Glitz, were perfect for this card.
 
 
I started by using a chipboard Star (how appropriate) and traced around it for my background paper then, I covered the chipboard with another paper out of the 'Color Me Happy' range from Glitz. I also used this same wood grain paper as one of my layers and then added the heart paper on top.
 
 I used a gorgeous star themed doiley with a circle punched out of the 'toilet people' that what I call the icons LOL.  Then I added a fussy cut globe with a rhinestone to finish off the front with the words 'Good Friends'

 
In the centre of the card I used a strip of Washi tape down the side, these tapes is available this Friday the 19th of April on Mad About Scrappin's FaceBook 'Flog it Friday'

 
Here is close up of my handwriting, not perfect but remember you can not make memories personal with the computer, a little bit of your own handwriting makes all the difference.
 
Make sure you put this on your list of challenges for the weekend, as entries are due by the 25th April.
 
Ta for now
TFL

Mine is done, I don't know how to put it into the album so I have just uploaded it to your home page on facebook, that took me a while to figure out how to do.
