Gift of a Friend
The world comes to life
And everything’s bright
From beginning to end
When you have a friend
By your side
That helps you to find
The beauty you are
When you open your heart
And believe in
The gift of a friend
The gift of a friend
-Demi Lovato

27 years and counting…That’s when you really know you’re BFFs 😉

Laura and I have been friends since the day I turned 15. Its crazy to look back on all we’ve been through in those years. Good times, bad times, crazy times and some downright ‘what were we thinking’ times!

So when her birthday came around, I decided I would torture her with a purple monochromatic card. I knew she’d still love me even if she didn’t like the card; true BFFs are like that. Why purple, you ask? Purple Rain! I’m a child of the 80’s, I can’t help it 😀

This card got the (almost) full Monty treatment…its been embossed, stamped, painted, glimmer misted and bling! I was in purple paradise 😉

What I Used:
eCraft (to cut the purple section of card and center circle)
eBosser (for embossing)
Embellie Gellie (so I didn’t lose that pesky gem)
Stampin’ Up! (stamps, punch & ink)
Scotch ATG
Glimmer Mist (and a paintbrush to color the doily)
Foam Dots
