Friendships are forever

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone and Happy Monday! 
We made it back from sunny Mexico late Saturday and now we are trying to get back in the swing of things, hehe! We had wonderful weather and amazing friends to hang out all week with. We definitely want to go back again sometime...for sure!
I was hoping to get on the Internet a bit more while we were there but we didn't have the best of connection at the resort. I will be trying to make some visits and getting caught up with blogging this week and hoping to craft some to~

 Today, I am sharing a card that I made for a friend of mine using a sweet sentiment from
  My Creative Time. Again, playing with some paints, sprays and embossing enamels. I just love the texture and depth it gives to your project. 
I hope you like it!
My base and base layer are created with the Nesting Eyelet Square die.The next layer is a panel using papers from MME~On the bright side collection which is distressed and adhered down. The next layer is embossed with the Swirly Vines folder and then sprayed with Peach Delight glimmer mist. 
After drying, I then layered the leaf sprays which are created with the Poppy Stamps Lovely Tendril die. I embossed them in pearl embossing powder. The doily is My Creative Time's~Bunch of Stitched Doily dies sprayed with glimmer mist. I stamped the sentiment with Friendships Are Forever stamp set onto a label I fussy cut out, then adhering in place.
The pretty butterfly is Poppy Stamps Murana and Samirah Butterfly dies, all from Scrapy Land. The top layer is embossed with Shabby White embossing enamel and gems were added to the center. 
I added a pretty cluster of flowers that are from Recollections. I tucked beneath the flowers a Chandra Stem from Memory Box. I finished with skittle embellishments from DoubleClick and a pretty bow using Turning Leaf ribbon from DL.ART. The jute string is from My Craft Spot and the little button is the Wee Petite Buttons from Die Versions .
